inLand

Doncaster Council is keen to engage with potential developers, partners and investors, to look at proposals to ensure that housing provision is met throughout the Borough. The Council would like to engage with those organisations who are interested in developing all tenures of housing, including private sale, shared ownership and housing for rent.

The inLand map has been developed by the Strategic Housing team to connect better with its customers. This new service allows developers, house builders and partners who have an interest in investing in Doncaster to access information on potential sites quickly and easily.

The inLand map allows you to view the location and status of potential housing development land owned by Doncaster Council that:

  • is available for development
  • is likely to be available in the future
  • is currently being developed by DMBC as part of our housing schemes
  • and completed  developments

If you are interested in finding out more information about the sites currently available, you can view brochure by following the link.

To assist you in navigating your way around the map we have provided you with some help notes below.

 Help notes

Once you have opened the map, you will see a column down the right hand side with three tabs:
