Derelict Land: Greater London
11 Nov 2014Ms Diane Abbott MP
To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what estimate his Department has made of the number of potential brownfield development sites in London; and if he will make a statement.
Answered by Mr Brandon Lewis MP on 20 November 2014
According to the National Land Use Database, there were an estimated 3,660 hectares of brownfield land in London that might have been available for redevelopment in 2010 (the latest, complete database). However redevelopment is not expected to be viable on all sites.
