Policy and Regulation:- European Union Brownfields 

1. Policy and Regulation
1.1 Policy
EU and national policy is shifting to promoting regeneration of derelict and underused sites and away from urban sprawl and development on greenfield sites.  
        
1.2 Regulation
There are no specific brownfield regulations anywhere in the EU.  Regulation is through the normal spatial planning system.  Many countries do have approaches 
to ensure the regeneration of (often urban) areas - which de facto have large swathes of brownfield land within them.
