Pilot Brownfield Register

In 2016, the local authorities in Greater Manchester joined a Government funded pilot to develop a brownfield register. This pilot brownfield register (PBR) aimed to show relevant brownfield land that is either deliverable or developable in each of the local authorities. Each of the local authorities identified relevant sites based on criteria issued by the Government’s department of communities and local government (DCLG).

Sites identified through this process do not have automatic permission in principle, nor is any permission granted other than through current planning procedures and policy.

The provision of this database is designed to support future housing delivery on brownfield land across Greater Manchester. By agreeing to the terms and conditions to the left, you can view the sites alongside a range of other data layers. They are available under the ‘Pilot Brownfield Register’ layers.

Each local authority has a copy of their PBR available on request.

The PBR itself is also provided in spreadsheet formats (CSV & XLSX) for all Greater Manchester.
