ASC has worked with English Partnerships to investigate the skills issues that prevent or hinder the reuse of brownfield land, and to advise on how these might be addressed. This strategy presents the findings of this joint work. It is the product of the most comprehensive examination of the issues that has ever been undertaken in this country.
Brownfield skills - why do they matter?
Development of brownfield land is a priority. The potential is considerable, with 52,670 hectares (ha) (26,100 sites)’of under-used vacant or derelict land across England recorded in 2006. However, to realise this potential and to ensure effective and efficient beneficial reuse of this land we need the right people with the right skills.
