Do you know of a brownfield site that would be suitable for redeveloping?

The Isle of Wight Council is looking for such land, which has already been built on, and is suitable for redeveloping.

The council is looking for suggestions of suitable land to add to the Island's list of brownfield sites.

Recently, MP Bob Seely claimed a significant victory when housing minister Robert Jenrick abandoned the formula that would have seen 1,000 houses built on the Island each year.

Mr Seely has consistently objected to greenfield schemes including one at Gunville in recent weeks.

The Isle of Wight Council is currently preparing the next version of the Local Plan, known as the Island Planning Strategy.

A council spokesperson said the document had an impact on where houses, businesses and other land uses can be created in the future.

The consultation runs over the next four weeks from today (Monday) to Friday, March 19, and everybody is welcome to have a say.

People responding do not have to own the land in question or even know who does own it.

Although landowners may wish to put forward their own land, it could simply be an area local people think would be suitable for redevelopment.

The council will review the land suggested, and contact landowners if needs be.

Of course, not every area of land suggested will get put on the list of brownfield sites, and even if land is on the list, it does not mean that it will automatically get redeveloped, as a planning application is still needed.

Cllr Barry Abraham said: "This call for brownfield sites is an excellent opportunity for anyone to tell us about brownfield land they know about that may be suitable for development.

"No one knows the Island better than its residents, and I hope everyone will give this some thought over the next few weeks."
