HL Deb 17 February 2003 vol 644 c162WA
Lord Hardy of Wath

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the area of brownfield land which has been developed in the county of South Yorkshire and in the Yorkshire region in 2002 and since 1997. [HL1511]

Lord Evans of Temple Guiting

Reliable regional figures are currently available for 1997 to 2000 only. These figures show that, in this time period, around 400 hectares of vacant and derelict land were developed in South Yorkshire. The total for the Government Office Region of Yorkshire and the Humber was around 1,200 hectares developed over the same period.
