The Brownfield register

Northern Data HubThis data is available to download from Northern Data Hub.



The Council is required to prepare and maintain annually, a Brownfield Register of sites which are considered to be suitable, available and achievable for residential development within 15 years.

The purpose of the register is to promote sites with either unimplemented planning permission for residential development and further opportunities which the Council considers to be suitable for new homes in order to encourage re-use of the land/buildings, stimulate regeneration and drive up housing delivery.

Since 2017 Bradford has produced a Part 1 register which comprises sites which the Local Authority consider to be suitable for residential use, are understood to be available and are likely to be achievable for residential development within 15 years. 

It contains details of sites of at least 0.25ha or capable of supporting at least 5 new homes. It does not include sites which are in use or likely to be developed for an alternative form of development or sites which are in the process of being developed.  An Information Note is provided below which gives more information about the sources of sites included in this first register.

More information about Brownfield registers can be found on the Government website.

Bradford District's Part 1, 2022 Brownfield Register can be downloaded from Northern Data Hub. The register is laid out in the standard format as required by Government. You can also view the information on an Interactive Map
