What is Brownfield Land?

Brownfield Land is land which is, or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. These sites have already been developed so their use for housing reduces urban sprawl.

Many brownfield sites are developed every year, however this is not enough of them to meet Local Authority housing needs.  Therefore greenfield sites are needed.
