There is just over a week left to register potential sites on the Island for a review and assessment of where future housing may be built. Since October 20 the council has been asking landowners, developers, businesses, parish and town councils and local interest groups to come forward with suggested locations – with 4 December the final deadline. The housing review and assessment is running alongside a separate call for proposed sites for a new ‘brownfield’ development register. Brownfield sites are those that have been previously developed.
