Research at Springfield
The Brownfield regeneration and heritage restoration centre will become a Black Country portal and centre of market intelligence. It will focus on Brownfield regeneration, land remediation, providing expertise in building heritage, conservation and façade retention.
The centre will share gathered intelligence and expertise with associated regional stakeholders. Together we will identify, research, prioritize and support a regional and national demand for release of Brownfield land, to be used for house building and commercial development.
In particular, informing regional and national policy as to where this land is located, how land can be restored, remediated and bought back to use, addressing UK demand to build 1 million new houses before 2020.
