This week’s Property Week carries an article looking at the potential of brownfield land which can be used for residential development – more than initially thought.  Click the link below to read the article.

Brownfield site development

The use of an increased amount of brownfield land is positive news considering the challenging targets for new housing.  However – a word of caution around previously built land is in order considering the onerous penalties which can be imposed on landowners (even if they did not cause pollution).  As noted in our blog at the end of January this year purchasers of brownfield sites would be well advised to consider an environmental survey as a part of their due diligence process.

Pii work closely with EIL who are able to carry out this work and would be pleased to provide a quotation upon enquiry.  If you would like to arrange a quotation or have any queries at all on this subject, please contact Gemma Worton at [email protected]
