Brownfield Land - We Need You!

TWBC will be reviewing their Brownfield register in December. It is vitally important that all brownfield sites are identified for development, to create a Local Plan that has minimal impact on the greenbelt.


Our aim is to bring brownfield, vacant and derelict land back into use.


Please look at TWBC's guidance on which brownfield sites can be registered at the link below. If you own the land, please complete the online form. If you don't own the land, please send the link onwards to the owner (if you know who they are!) or email savecapel@gmail.com with the location of the land and any background and we will try to identify the owner and encourage them to register their land.

Brownfield land must be:

- "previously developed", i.e. land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. This excludes: land that is or was last occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings; land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill, where provision for restoration has been made through development management procedures; land in built-up areas such as residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments; and land that was previously developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape.

- capable of supporting development of five or more dwellings, or be at least 0.25 hectares in size

- suitable for residential use

- deliverable within five years

- achievable (no ownership or legal issues)

- free from any constraints that cannot be mitigated
