The housing land map below will help you to find information on housing sites across Sheffield giving details of:

  • sites with planning permission for housing
  • land ownership
  • development opportunities
  • current planning status for sites

You can search for a specific site by address or the site reference by using the drop down in the search box of the map. You can also select a site to view further details, the most recent planning permissions or to contact us about the site. Please note the maps reflect the position in 2015.

Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

An assessment of land availability identifies future supply of land which is suitable, available and achievable for housing development. 

The assessment is an important evidence source to inform plan making, but does not determine where a site should be allocated for development. Not all sites considered in the assessment will be suitable for development, for example because of policy constraints or if they are unviable. 

The SHLAA Interim Position Paper 2016 is an update since the last SHLAA report from November 2015. It takes account of completions for 2015-16 and the current 5 year supply of sites from 2017-18 to 2021-22.

Brownfield Land Register

In the Housing and Planning Act (May 2016) the Government set out its intention to introduce a statutory Brownfield Register and a new permission in principle route to full planning permission. The Brownfield Land Register Regulations came into force in March 2017, and require every Local Planning Authority to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield land which is suitable for residential development. This must be made publicly available by 31 December 2017.  

We worked with Government to produce a Brownfield Register pilot that was published in June 2016. We have now published the full Brownfield Register as required within the regulations (publication date 21 December 2017).  This register will be maintained by the Council and will be reviewed within each year in accordance with the regulations.  

The Brownfield Register will be in two parts. Part 1 is an up to date, comprehensive list of all brownfield sites within Sheffield that are suitable for housing, including sites both with and without planning permission. Part 1 of the register can be downloaded in the format required by the regulations. Alternatively it can be viewed on the map.

Part 2 of the register can be used to grant planning permission in principle (PiP) to a sub-set of sites from Part 1. Before a site can be granted permission in principle, we would need to follow statutory consultation and publicity procedures as set out in the Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017. No sites are currently proposed for inclusion in Part 2 of the register. 

The definition of Brownfield, previously developed, land can be found in Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework.     

We have provided the location of all the sites in an interactive web map.
