Research at Springfield

The Brownfield regeneration and heritage restoration centre will become a Black Country portal and centre of market intelligence for 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 to identify, research, prioritize and support a regional/national demand for release of Brownfield land 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.
