Key Info
Ideas for use in class
  • To introduce students to the topic of urban redevelopment. Having taught the concept of brownfield sites, groups could be allocated to each of the five development options mentioned in the clip. They could be tasked with justifying their proposal to the rest of the class in a planning debate. Then show the final clip in the sequence. It is important students understand redevelopment projects are inevitably contentious, and that some schemes are more successful than others. To that end it is probably a good idea to initiate a discussion about what constitutes 'good' development practice.
