Housing sites mapped: England’s most comprehensive brownfield land map

18 November 2019

We’ve updated our award-shortlisted digital resource that plots all brownfield land sites in England.

This interactive map is designed to make it easier to locate available brownfield sites in England. It brings together, for the first time, comprehensive information on all brownfield sites in the country. 

It's easy to see, at a glance, where the sites are located, and the data is searchable by:

  • region
  • size (new as of 2019)
  • parliamentary constituency
  • local or combined authority
  • ownership or planning status. 

We’ve updated the map using data from the 2018 brownfield register, and it now includes site boundaries.

The map also highlights the potential number of new homes that could be built in each area.
