Description

A report encouraging students to think about what they would do with a brownfield site. What would you need to find out to make your proposal effective? What would the economic, social and environmental effects be? What is the history of the site and its surroundings? What planning constraints are in place? And what would public opinion be?

Classroom Ideas

Can be used during a module on urban areas. This clip is part of a 3-part series and can be used in sequence to create a full case study. This clip would best be used at least with part 2, which outlines 5 proposals for the Stoke on Trent potteries site. Students should answer the questions 'What would you need to find out to make your proposal effective?' 'What would the economic, social and environmental effects be?' 'What is the history of the site and its surroundings?' 'What planning constraints are in place?' 'And what would public opinion be?' Some of these questions would need to be researched independently.
