Interactive Housing Land Map

Doncaster Council is keen to use its land to ensure that much needed housing is provided in the borough. The Council welcomes applications from potential investors who are interested in developing and building housing for rent, shared ownership as well as owner-occupation.

The map along with the instructions below allows you to view the location and status of land owned by Doncaster Council that:

  • is available for development
  • is likely to be available in the future
  • is currently being developed for housing schemes
  • has been developed

If you are interested in any specific sites which are currently available, you can also view a brochure.

The map does not show all the land owned by Doncaster Council, as sites are reviewed and made available, these will be added to the map.

Help notes

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

  • Filter on map
  • Filter sites
  • Results

You can use these tabs to filter your search in different ways and then view the results, select individual sites, zoom in and look at their details.
