Brownfield register

Brownfield register - overview

This Brownfield Register was published on 15 December 2023 by Great Yarmouth Borough Council. The Council will review and update the register annually. 

Land is entered onto Part 1 of the register provided that it meets all the relevant criteria as set out in the Brownfield Land Register regulations (2017). 

Broadly speaking, sites should be:

  • previously developed land (as defined by the National Planning Policy Framework)
  • at least 0.25 hectares in area, or capable of supporting at least five dwellings
  • suitable for residential development
  • available for residential development
  • where residential development of the land is achievable

The Borough Council has not prepared, in 2023, an optional Part 2 of this register (which can grant 'permission in principle' for residential development), but will annually review the desirability of doing so. 

Please note that the register does not include any land in those parts of the Borough within the designated Broads area, where the Broads Authority is the local planning authority and responsible for the relevant Brownfield Register.
