Sustainable Brownfield Regeneration presents a comprehensiveaccount of UK policies, processes and practices in brownfieldregeneration and takes an integrated and theoretically-groundedapproach to highlight best practice. Brownfield regeneration has become a major policy driver indeveloped countries. It is estimated that there are 64,000 hectaresof brownfield land in England, much of which presents severeenvironmental challenges and lies alongside some of the mostdeprived communities in the country. Bringing such land back intoactive use has taken on a new urgency among policymakers,developers and other stakeholders in the development process.Frequently, however, policy thinking and practice has beenunderpinned by 'silo' mentalities, in which integratedand multidisciplinary approaches to problem-solving have beenlimited. The book has two principal aims. The first is to examine theways in which science and social science research disciplines canbe brought together to help solve important brownfield regenerationissues, with a focus on the UK. The second is to assess theefficiency and effectiveness of different types of regenerationpolicy and practice, and to show how 'liveable spaces'can be produced from 'problem places'. The ThamesGateway in the south of England and Greater Manchester in the Northof England are shown as examples of how brownfield regenerationprojects are developing in an era where sustainability is high onthe policy agenda. From the Foreword by Paul Syms, National Brownfield Advisor,English Partnerships: 'Ensuring the effective and efficient reuse of brownfieldland is an essential part of the British Government's landuse policies in support of sustainable communities. [This book]recognises that reusing brownfield land is not just aboutover-coming technical issues to remove contamination or otherphysical problems with the ground. It highlights the importance ofengaging with the many different stakeholders whose opinions andconcerns need to be taken into account if sustainable outcomes areto be achieved. The authors also recognise that brownfield landreuse is not just about building new homes or places of employment- the creation of new green spaces can be just asimportant.'

"The list of authors is impressive and the writing styles aregood." Building Engineer, April 2008 This book applies a timely andoriginal approach to addressing the problems and opportunities ofbrownfield regeneration. It sets out future policy needs and adoptsa prescriptive, practice-relevant approach. A key strength is thatit not only addresses technical issues, but also'softer' issues such as community participation,governance, social equity and communication/knowledge transfer,showing how these are critical to the effective implementation ofregeneration solutions. (Urban Studies, April2010)"The list of authors is impressive and the writing styles aregood."
