SIMPLIFYING THE PLANNING OF SUSTAINABLE BROWNFIELD LAND DEVELOPMENT
Government views brownfield land as a key enabler for delivering new housing. In 2014 the Department for Local Government & Communities (DCLG) required local authorities to specify which brownfield sites would be subject to Local Development Orders. The government also announced that more than two thirds of new homes would be built on brownfield land, committing £1.2bn towards the preparation of brownfield sites.
This one day conference will explore what brownfield land development means for planning authorities and developers, examining issues around the effective use of data and mapping, environmental risk and financial viability. It will also seek to create the case for developing more sustainable and connected communities supported by effective infrastructure.
