Rossendale’s Brownfield Land Register has now been published and is available to view online.
This is a list of previously developed sites in Rossendale that are suitable for housing. Its purpose is to provide nationally consistent, up-to-date, publicly available information on brownfield land for developers and communities in order to encourage investment in local areas.
It should be noted that the Brownfield Land Register is not an exhaustive list of brownfield sites within Rossendale as sites can only be included that meet the criteria set out in the Regulations. As a result some small brownfield sites (smaller than 0.25 ha) that form part of a larger greenfield site have not been included. Any sites that current planning policy would not permit (such as those in the Green Belt) have also been omitted.
However, if there is a brownfield site that you are aware of and think should be included please email firstname.lastname@example.org attaching a plan that would help us to identify the site or building, so that we can consider it in next year’s update.
