Local authorities across England will be required to produce, and make publically available, an up-to-date register of brownfield sites available for housing. This is part of the government’s ambitious initiative to speed up the creation of much needed new homes across the country. Land can be freed up across England simply by highlighting derelict or underused areas so builders and developers can easily identity potential sites.
