73 councils throughout England have been named as one of the ‘new brownfield registers’ by Greg Clark, the Communities Secretary.
By doing this he is providing developers with current information that is publicly available to them on all brownfield that could potentially be developed for local housing.
This will also be allowing the local communities to focus on the local sites for listing. In certain incidents this will include derelict buildings that are ideal for redevelopment, and in turn would attract investment to the location. These will eventually become compulsory.
Any council that aggress to be part of the pilot project will be awarded £10,000 from the government to help with the preparation of their registers.
The UK’s largest listed residential landlord, Developer Grainger, has submitted an application to the West Berkshire Council for a development to be known as an “urban village”. The development will include:
- • 232 new homes
- • Around 950 square meters of offices
- • New station plaza
- • Car parking
- • A new bus station
At the moment the site is a group of parking spaces and a bus station. The local authority largely owns it.
Imagine purchasing a house then finding out this development was taking place next door. Get a DevAssist report and protect you self and your client.
