Three-quarters of homes built on brownfied sites says ODPM

This is up two per cent from the previous count and up from 56 per cent when the government came to power. The average density is 40 homes per hectare, up from 25 in 1997. Housing and planning minister Yvette Cooper said the figures prove the government's commitment to brownfield use.
