Short description: The dynamics of the brownfield problem in cities/regions is illustrated by the 'bath model'. The conceptual model demonstrates that as long as the brownfield bath continues to 'refill' due to the creation of brownfield sites, cities will always have brownfield sites. In some regions more sites become derelict than are regenerated and therefore the overall area of brownfields will increase. More importantly a number of types of sites remain on the bottom of the bathtub for a considerable amount of time, the so-called persistent or hardcore sites. These are often sites of low economic value that have remained derelict for a number of years.
