The benefits of turning brownfields green
Christopher A. De Sousa carried research into turning brownfields into green space in the City of Toronto.
Da Sousa asked what kinds of benefits there were from turning Brownfield sites green. Nine of the Interviewees he asked found that they identified the creation of new ecological habitats as a primary issue.
Most of the other key benefits identified involvement, providing more recreational spaces, offering models for future redevelopment and enhanced educational opportunities.
Destroying Ecological Habitats
"Urban regeneration is ideally suited to deliver
Sustainability" Phil Jones analysis some benifits
of gentrification and how to deal with social
problems in a holistic and long term way
