Short description: At the heart of HOMBRE is the ambition to create a paradigm shift to ‘Zero Brownfields’ where Brownfields become areas of opportunity that deliver useful services for society, instead of derelict areas that are considered useless. This ambition will be met by looking at how synergies between different types of services might leverage change where none was possible before. Each Brownfield has its own potential for delivering useful combinations of services and hence new opportunities. For example, synergies between services like development + water improvement + renewable energy. An intelligent and holistic suite of technologies, management measures and land use is the key that can unlock this potential. HOMBRE is centred on the identification of synergies and the design of the approaches needed to achieve them. An overarching assessment of opportunities and services lets stakeholder(s) choose how these are taken into account for the possible re-uses. The HOMBRE shift in thinking relates not only to the redevelopment itself, but also to gaining better understanding in early recognition and prevention of land that might become a Brownfield in the future, and how to monitor this as part of the land use cycle. All public project outputs are available from this page
