The development of Brownfield land will continue to be a focus for the next few years in the aim to provide much needed housing throughout the UK. The Government hopes to transform unused and derelict buildings, while making the most of brownfield land. Also to tackle the housing shortage in urban areas by enabling commercial premises to be converted into new homes through a fast-track planning permission process.
