Short description: The restructuring of European economies, including the migration of manufacturing to Asia, has resulted in many underused, derelict and contaminated industrial sites. At the same time land demand, principally lead by housing, has made many of these urban sites into attractive assets. The owners of these sites would like to realise the value of these assets and at the same time avoid any future risk of liability. Developers/constructors use the uplift in land values to decontaminate previously developed land, provide development platforms and clean cover layers, and build the necessary infrastructure, while at the same time generating returns and managing risks. Municipalities and local communities look to local economic, social and environmental regeneration and to provide for a sustainable future. The sale, decontamination and redevelopment of post industrial land are vital to all these stakeholders needs. The workshop was divided into four sessions: o Drivers for redevelopment of sites for government – municipality – industry – redevelopers o Management of liability o Case studies o Tools and communication The workshop also included an interactive game session on site redevelopment.
