I'm a native English British English speaker, and to me brownfield does 
not mean just "scheduled for development".  It just means "was used for 
some development but is no longer".  It _may_ then be used for something 
else in the future (you often hear "redevelopment of brownfield sites), 
but that's not a requirement.

It'd be perfectly meaningful to say "in XYZ place there are lots of 
brownfield sites not scheduled for any development".
