MORE THAN 1,200 homes could be built on brownfield land on the Isle of Wight.

The figures are revealed in the Isle of Wight Council's 2022 Brownfield Land Register (BFLR).

The BFLR  is something planning authorities must produce each year, containing the most up-to-date information about previously used sites it considers to be appropriate for residential development.

BFLRs were first produced in 2017 when 27 Island sites were listed.

It has grown every year since and now 116 sites are on the 2022 version.

More than 64 hectares of brownfield land has planning permission or is already being built on.

This could amount to 1,229 homes across 47 sites on the list.

In the last year, 22 sites have been added, each with residential development potential, including the former driving test centre on Medina Avenue in Newport, the former Zanies nightclub in Sandown and land at the former Shoulder of Mutton pub site on Coppins Bridge.

No sites are taken away from the BFLR but instead given an end date, to signify they are no longer considered to be valid entries on the register.

In the latest edition, there are 27 such sites with an end date.

One of those is the Ponda Rosa in Ashey, where officers said they have removed the site after refusing a planning application, noting it was not 'achievable or deliverable' as a residential development.

The Isle of Wight Council owns 15 of the valid sites with the potential to develop 116 properties.

Here are the sites still valid on the BFLR 2022, which has been deemed to have residential potential ...
