Ciria brownfield guidance for small sites set for publication

Small brownfield and contaminated sites are the focus of a new guidance document set to be published by construction guidance organisation Ciria.

C773 A guide to small brownfield sites and land contamination is aimed at helping to overcome the barriers and issues that can obstruct the development and management of smaller sites.

Ciria has said that development of brownfield sites can be hindered by derelict structures, below ground obstructions or voids, land contamination, poor ground, archaeological features and buried services because they have been previously used. Despite these challenges, Ciria has said that small sites can be developed relatively quickly if they have been planned and managed well and the guidance aims to aid that process.

According to Ciria, small brownfield sites pose particular challenges to landholders, developers, builders and their advisors and funders. The new document contains general guidance on the technical, financial and planning issues when managing land contamination.

The new guidance is available from Ciria in print or PDF format.
