holding answer 12 December 2011

There were an estimated 5,350 hectares of brownfield land owned by local authorities in England in 2009, according to the National Land Use Database of Previously-Developed Land. A table showing the amounts and number of sites by local authority has been placed in the Library of the House.

No information is available on the amount of local authority owned green-belt or green-field land.

My Department is taking a series of steps to encourage the development and regeneration of brownfield sites, as outlined in my answer of 25 October 2011, Hansard, column 123W.
