Cover: Untapped Potential Cover: Untapped Potential

A vast amount of land within towns and cities crying out for development is going to waste. Many councils are failing to identify opportunities for development on brownfield land. Our study found widespread neglect of sites such as empty or underused car parks, former industrial and derelict land. We commissioned leading planning consultants, Llewelyn Davies Yeang to research current practice among local councils in getting residential development on underused and neglected land.
