Local Planning Authorities are required to maintain a register of previously developed sites which are capable of being redeveloped or converted to provide housing-led development.
All sites must meet the definition of 'previously developed land' which is included within the Annex 2: Glossary of the National Planning Policy Framework .
All sites must meet the following criteria to be included:
In accordance with Government requirements, Part 1 of the Council's Brownfield Land Register includes sites which are at least 0.25 hectares in area, or are capable of providing a net gain of at least 5 dwellings. Sites currently pending permission are also included. Sites which are under construction are however not included on the Part 1 Brownfield Land Register.
The Council's Part 1 publication of the Brownfield Land Register has been informed by sites included in the Strategic Housing Employment Land Availability Assessment (April 2021), the Fareham Local Plan 2037, pending planning applications and existing planning permissions. It has been published in an Excel/CSV spreadsheet in accordance with Government requirements. This includes webpage links to site plans for each of the listed sites and webpage links to existing planning permissions or pending decisions as of 1 April 2023 where applicable:
The sites on the Brownfield Register can also be viewed on the following interactive map:
Part 2 of the Brownfield Land Register is a subset of part 1. Part 2 comprises only those sites contained in part 1 that Fareham Borough Council has decided would be suitable for granting a permission in principal (PiP) for residential development. There are currently no sites which are considered suitable for entry on part 2 of the register.
The Government has also published a Frequently Asked Questions webpage which gives further information on Brownfield Land Registers .
