Brownfield Land Register Open or Close
Update: 1st March 2018
The register has been updated to remove a site that had been mistakenly included in the original register published in December 2017. Site reference KIL/2304, Land on the B6058 to the East of Barbers Lane is located within the Green Belt and is therefore not suitable for inclusion in the register.
The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 requires Councils to prepare, maintain and publish a register of previously developed (Brownfield) land and to update it annually. The Council’s Brownfield Land Register was first published in December 2017, and updated in March 2018.
The purpose of brownfield land registers is to provide up-to-date and consistent information on previously developed land that is considered to be appropriate for residential development. The Government hopes that this will help housebuilders identifying suitable sites quickly and speeding up the construction of new homes.
The Regulations 2017 set out the criteria which local authorities have to follow in preparing and publishing a Brownfield land register. This requires that the register is provided in a spreadsheet style and published in a standard data format. The register consists of two parts; Part 1 should comprise all brownfield sites that a local planning authority has assessed as appropriate for residential development and Part 2 as a subset of Part 1 which is optional. However, NED’s Brownfield Land Register currently comprises only a Part 1 register.
In total, 30 brownfield sites have been identified which comprise approximately 100 ha of housing land and could accommodate up to 2,065 dwellings. To identify these sites different sources of datasets (e.g. brownfield sites form Housing Land Availability Assessment, brownfield sites with granted permission, etc.) were utilised.
It is required that Brownfield land registers should be publish in a ’csv’ format and an INSPIRE compliant polygon format. NED’s Brownfield Land Register is available for download below in these required formats (and also in Excel):

Further information on the requirements for brownfield land registers can be viewed on the Government’s National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG) website.
The Brownfield Register is published under the Open Government Licence.
Monitoring and Five Year Supply Open or Close
The Localism Act (2011) includes the requirement to prepare an Authority Monitoring Report (AMR).Authorities can choose which targets and indicators to include in the report as long as they are in line with the relevant UK and EU legislation. Their primary purpose is to share the performance and achievements of the planning service with the local community. AMR 13 covers the period 2016-2017.
Self Build and Custom Build Open or Close
Self build housing means that you are directly involved in organising the design and construction of your new home. Custom Build usually means working with a specialist developer to help you deliver your home. There may be some overlap between the two - for example some custom build developers offer the option of a serviced plot where you can design and build your own home as part of a larger scheme.
From 1st April 2016, the Council will keep a register of individuals and associations who are looking for serviced plots of land in the district. The Register will provide an indication of the demand for self / custom build in North East Derbyshire District and allow the Council to develop its housing and planning policies to support the build projects that would be most appropriate.
To register please complete the Self Build and Custom Build Registration form.
Applicants should be over 18 and either: a British citizen; or a European Economic Area National; or a national of Switzerland. Applicants should be looking for a plot of land in North East Derbyshire district to occupy as their sole or main residence.
If your application is successful we will notify you within 28 days and place your details on our register. If your application is unsuccessful we will notify you of the reason(s) within 28 days.
All personal information will be held and treated in confidence. For more information about self and Custom building, please contact the Local Plan team using the number on this page.
