Brownfield Land Call for Sites

Coventry City Council is conducting a call for brownfield sites in order to help identify potential sites that that may be able to help meet the city’s development needs (housing, employment, leisure etc). This call for brownfield sites presents interested parties with the opportunity to submit sites which may be suitable. All of the sites submitted will be subjected to a detailed assessment in order to establish their suitability, availability and achievability in meeting the development needs of Coventry.

This call for brownfield sites will run for a period of 10 weeks, starting 23/03/2022 and ending 01/06/2022. All sites need to be submitted using our form which can be found below along with other supporting information. Alongside this, a site plan should be submitted so that the site can be identified appropriately. It is important that as much information as possible relating to the site is provided in order to allow for an effective assessment. Each supporting document (ie Completed form or site plan) will need to be uploaded individually using the 'Respond by uploading a response document.' button below. Please note that sites submitted during the previous call for sites may not be carried forward and will therefore need to be re-submitted with up-to-date information. You should also be aware that all submitted information except personal details will be publicly available to ensure transparency and fairness in the assessment process.

We are conducting this exercise in line with the framework outlined in the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) Methodology. This methodology was produced in collaboration with other Local Authorities within the Coventry and Warwickshire sub-region. 

Brownfield Land (defined as previously developed land in Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework) is:

  • Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure.

This Excludes:

  • land that is or was last occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings;
  • land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill, where provision for restoration has been made through development management procedures;
  • land in built-up areas such as residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments; and
  • land that was previously developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape

*Please note that during this call for sites we will not be considering any greenfield sites and we will reject any greenfield submissions sent to us.
