‘’VISITORS could soon be taking a faster route to Barry Island thanks to a new £250mdevelopment.The new road will run through the centre of the Waterfront complex, providing amuch more direct link to the Island from Cardiff Road and easing pressure on thecauseway, which often becomes clogged with traffic at the height of the summerseason.The road will also give access to the planned second phase of the Waterfront development,including a new primary school, cafe quarter, park and houses.The final proposal for the link road is the result of lengthy public consultation and debate on the finalphase of the waterfront development’’Written June 2010 Source: www.walesonline.co.uk/...news/.../new-link-road-a-faster-route-to-barry-island-91466-26660410
Brownfield or Greenfield?To Start…• Which of these images do you think are brownfield/greenfield sites?• What is the difference?
Today… Distinguish between brownfield and Greenfield sites Identify reasons for the need to develop brownfield sites Explain why waterfront developments are/have been popular around the UK Assess the impacts of a waterfront development
Brownfield sites are abandonedor underused industrial andcommercial facilities available forre-use.
Commonly undeveloped land in a city or rural area either currently used for agriculture orlandscape design or left to naturally evolve. These areas of land are usually agricultural oramenity properties being considered for urban development.Greenfield land can be unfenced open fields, urban lots or restricted closed properties kept offlimits to the general public by a private or government entities.Rather than build upon greenfield land a developer may choose to re-develop brownfield orgreyfield lands. Those are areas that have previously been developed but have been leftabandoned or underutilized.Greenfield Sites – landthat has not been builton before. Often rural /countryside areas.
More sustainableOften on the edge of towns andcities and may have better accessHave less congestionMore pleasant environment and havemore space and room to expandHouse prices would increase in inner cityareas as people are encouraged back tothe area. This might mean that localpeople can not afford the houses.New drainage, electricity, roads etc.would all have to be produced.New housing can lead to gentrification (oldhousing done up- area becomes more trendyand affluent) so the area will improve andthings like crime rates will improve.Easier to build on as there is a fresh startThere is an issue of contamination andmaking sites safe for development.‘Sucks’ out the core from towns as shopetc. locate on the edge oftowns/cities
