Brownfield Land Register

The Council is required by government to produce a Brownfield Land Register. The purpose of the Register is to identify brownfield (i.e. previously developed) sites that are suitable for housing or housing-led mixed use development.

The Brownfield Land Register is in two parts:

Part 1:  identifies suitable brownfield sites that can deliver five dwellings or more. Inclusion on this list does not necessarily mean that the site would be granted planning permission.

Part 2: is a list of sites that have been granted Permission in Principle (PiP). PiP establishes whether a site is suitable in principle for residential development.  There are currently no sites on Part 2 of the West Lancs Brownfield Land Register.  If and when any sites are to be included on part 2 of the Register, we will consult appropriately.

2019 Brownfield Land Register

Part 1 of the 2019 Brownfield Land Register can be found below. Most of the sites either have an existing planning permission or are part of Local Plan allocations.  The Register will be reviewed annually, adding new sites, or removing (developed) sites where appropriate. 

In addition, the list below shows the boundary of every site in the 2018 Register:
