English Partnerships, a predecessor organisation to the HCA, published a range of brownfield regeneration guides for those involved with brownfield regeneration:
We manage the National Land Use Database of Previously Developed Land (NLUD-PDL) on behalf of government. The aim of the database is to provide a consistent, comprehensive, and up to date record of all previously developed land and buildings in England that may be available for development, whether vacant, derelict, or still in productive use.
Results and statistical analysis using the information contained within the database are available annually. NLUD-PDL classifies brownfield land into five main types:
Statistical releases for national and regional trends in previously developed land are compiled from information on individual sites supplied by local authorities across England. Data is provided for each land type but we do not supply any specific information on sites currently in use with known potential for redevelopment, but no planning permission or allocation in a local plan.
A report of previously-developed land that may be available for redevelopment presents a statistical summary of survey results of both the supply of vacant and derelict sites and in use sites that may be available for redevelopment from 2009. The report also looks at a range of measurements concerning the potential reuse of PDL, including housing, across England as identified by local authorities.
Summary tables, site level data and NLUD-PDL survey data from 2001 to 2008 are available to download from the results page of the archived NLUD website.
