Government requires local planning authorities in England to prepare, maintain, and publish a register of brownfield land that has been assessed as being suitable for housing development.

Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017

The register, which is divided into two parts, comprises a standard set of information. It is also intended that the register - which is to be kept up-to-date (normally at least once a year) and be made publicly available - will help provide certainty for both developers and communities, and encourage investment in local areas.

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils have prepared a single register which covers both districts (see link above). Further updates will be undertaken consistent with the Councils' usual Joint Annual Monitoring Report publication processes and time-scales.
