Is it really brownfield?


An interesting blog this week on the ‘It’s Our Cornwall’ site on Facebook.

Another development site described as a ‘publicly owned brownfield site’ is the former Richard Lander school at Truro. But half of the area now set to get 226 houses is playing fields. Which strangely look green, not brown. This was voted through by the last meeting of the old council’s Strategic Planning Committee, by 12 to one with one abstention. Will the new strategic planning committee be any less developer-friendly?

Comment    As we know lots of areas are described as brownfield yet if you have a look you discover they are green!!
How many acres of ‘brownfield’ land that have been developed have actually been greenfield we wonder?
