Potential Impacts of Brownfield Development: an Assessment
By David McOmish
The government has made the case for developing brownfield land in order to help address the housing shortage in England.
Using Leeds city centre as a case study, this assessment evaluates the likely scale of brownfield development, and its potential impact on historic fabric and places. This revealed that (potentially) we currently underestimate the number of historic assets and places that might be impacted by brownfield development.
There is analysis of the opportunities for enhanced understanding of the significance and value of those places selected for potential brownfield development. The report also frames the scope of our potential response and engagement with the development proposed.
