The total amount of land within either an Opportunity Area, Housing Zone or in previously identified brownfield sites (sites on planning authorities’ brownfield registers) is 15,594 hectares. A breakdown by borough is included in the spreadsheet ‘MQ 2020 0590 Developable land.xlsx’. Only Opportunity Areas with formally adopted boundaries are included in the calculation.
