Waverley was one of the councils selected by the Government to develop and publish a Pilot Brownfield Register. The purpose of the pilot scheme was to test the Government’s draft policy on brownfield registers before it was finalised and brownfield registers became a statutory requirement.
Please note that since the publication of the Waverley Pilot Brownfield Register in July 2016, the Council have published the Waverley Brownfield Land Register.
In compiling the pilot register Waverley followed the methodology, guidance and data specification set out in the Pilot Brownfield Register Manual and the Pilot Brownfield Register Data Specification Guidance.
Sites included on the Pilot Brownfield Register are previously developed land considered to be suitable for housing. They are considered to be available and are either capable of supporting five or more dwellings or comprise more than 0.25ha of land. 'Suitability' does not indicate that the whole of the site is capable of being developed.
The Pilot Brownfield Register is not a policy document and the inclusion of a site in the Register which currently does not have planning permission does not give planning Permission in Principle (PiP). A planning application will still need to be made. However, sites in the Pilot Brownfield Register are identified without prejudice to the determination of a planning application. Their inclusion does not mean that planning permission will be granted for housing development.
The information contained in the Pilot Brownfield Register has a base date of 1st April 2016. While we take great care to ensure that the information provided on sites is accurate, we cannot accept any liability or responsibility should you rely on the information provided and ultimately find it to have been incorrect.
