Open space opportunities for previously developed land (C694)

This guide informs the reader of the opportunities associated with creating open space on previously developed land and advice on how to deliver projects. It has been developed to be relevant to stakeholders working across the UK, including information on relevant policy and legislation and on organisations active in dealing with previously developed land and open space projects.

Creating open space on previously developed land can provide genuine opportunities. Well conceived projects can help to make the most out of sites that may be otherwise subject to blight and high management costs and can generate significant knock on social, environmental and economic benefits. Open spaces are multi-functional, offering not just a single land use solution, but the opportunity to achieve social, environmental and economic added value.
