The report, Brownfield: The Housing Crisis Solved?, has been published by the Gracechurch group, which includes Palatium Investment Management, Dominic Lawson Bespoke Planning, Crocus Valley and Bonnar Allan.
It is a study assessing brownfield sites across England, determining what contribution they could make to solving the housing crisis. Councils are required to create new brownfield land registers to help increase the use of previously developed land, releasing the pressure on greenfield land. A total of 67 of the 73 initial pilot local authorities have now published their registers.
The report reviews the brownfield land identified on the registers and overlay the Government’s new formula for housing need to assess whether there is enough brownfield land to solve the housing crisis. The data is provided nationally, regionally and by individual authorities.
