2. About brownfield sites
Brownfield land is land that has been previously developed. A definition of ‘previously developed land’ is provided by the government in Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework.
However the following can be regarded as potentially being a brownfield site:
- Previously developed land which is now vacant
- Vacant buildings
- Derelict land and buildings
- Other previously developed land or buildings currently in use where it is known there is potential for redevelopment.
