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.

Access the inLand map

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.

When choosing this option it provides you with six ways of identifying sites, selected the option you prefer by clicking on one the following buttons:

          Point Button - shows all sites within a set distance from that point.

         Line Button - shows all sites within a set distance from the line.

         Polyline Button - shows all sites within a set distance from the lines.

  • If you choose one of these options you must tick the ‘Buffer Graphic Box’
  • Then insert the distance in miles you want.

  • However if you prefer to search outside of the shape, tick the ‘Buffer Graphic Box’ and choose a distance in miles you want.
  • Plot the shape by clicking as many times as needed to draw the boundary and double click to finish.


However you choose to filter your search, your results will be plotted on the map as well as providing you with a list of sites shown in the results menu.
