  • Development Information provides an overview of development activity within the City of London. It contains key statistics for office, retail, residential and hotel schemes, illustrated with graphs, map and photographs. It is issued six-monthly for April - September and October - March.
  • Development Schedules provide detailed tables showing development sites and planning permissions, including site address, agent, floorspace, and a description of the scheme, in the City of London. It is published twice-yearly.
  • Spatial data layers for Development in the City of London are available to view on the page City of London Interactive Mapping - Development.
  • Spatial data layers for Greater London are available from the London Development Database operated by the Greater London Authority.

Brownfield register

​The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 requires local authorities to prepare and maintain registers of previously developed (brownfield) land that is suitable for residential development.

Registers will be in two parts:

Part 1 will comprise all brownfield sites appropriate for residential development. For the City of London the data is available to be accessed in the following ways:

Part 2 is those sites granted permission in principle. In practice there are currently no such sites in the City of London and thus there is no data file made available.

Data for the City of London Brownfield Register will be updated twice a year in sequence with the City of London Development Schedules (see section above).

The Mayor of London has worked with London Planning Authorities to collate individual London Planning Authorities registers. Data and guidance is available on the London Datastore.
