Brownfield Register

​​On this page find out what the Brownfield Register is and access documents to submit a site to be added to Newham's Brownfield Register​​

​What is the Brownfield Register?

There is a legal requirement for Local Planning Authorities to prepare, maintain and publish registers of previously developed (brownfield) land. 

Brownfield sites that meet the relevant criteria must be entered in Part 1 of brownfield land registers. Sites can optionally be entered in Part 2 of the brownfield land register, granting them Permission in Principle.

For further information on brownfield registers, including legal requirements, see Government guidance, Brownfield registers and permission in principle: frequently asked questions.

Newham’s Brownfield Register

Newham’s Brownfield Register has been prepared as per the Data Standard set by the Government. It is being published in the following formats:
Part 1 of the register currently contains 49 sites, including a mix of housing allocations and sites with planning permission. Most sites fall below the threshold of 0.25ha, but are deemed capable of sustaining at least 5 dwellings.  

There are no sites proposed for Part 2 of the Newham Brownfield Register.

The register has also been submitted to the GLA and can be accessed on London Datastore​.

Updates to the Brownfield Register

Newham’s Brownfield Register will be updated annually, unless otherwise deemed necessary. 

If you would like a site to be considered for addition to the register, please complete the Brownfield Register Sites Submission Form and submit it by email to the address listed below.
