Short description: Extract: Across Europe, the presence of derelict land is a subject of concern in many countries. Brownfield sites present particular challenges to national and regional policy makers in terms of bringing the land back into beneficial use and in terms of cleaning up contaminated land and groundwater. While contaminated land management is aiming at the management or elimination of risks, the primary objective of brownfield redevelopment is the reuse of the land and the reintegration of the properties into the economic cycle. In this respect successful brownfield redevelopment policies and strategies particularly need the combination of environmental approaches with spatial and urban planning approaches to be integrated into policy approaches and vice versa. To provide such a link between disciplines and issues, the Working Group „Brownfield Redevelopment“ within the wider CLARINET project examined this in depth.
