1 milion opportunities for developers
Through some detailed analysis of local council’s Brownfield registers the Council for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE) has discovered sites with the potential to build 1 million new homes lying vacant and unused across England.
Identifying as much as two thirds of this land as ready to develop the opportunities are ready and waiting for developers to seize the opportunity.
With funding available for sites of all shapes and sizes, there’s no reason for developers not to look to their future and get building.

The CPRE has found space for 37,000 homes in Enfield alone, being so close to London this is prime space,
Currently there is no government policy to prioritise brownfield sites but this could mean that where a site is identified there will be less competition from large, national developers.
