 The safe development of housing on Brownfield land is a fundamental element in the delivery of sustainable development. The Barker review commented
“housing is a basic human need –fundamental to economic and social well being”
. Accordingly house building rates need to risesubstantially to avoid increased homelessness and social division – but this should not be at theexpense of losing our precious green open spaces.Paramount to the sustainability of such development is the management of environmental risksboth during construction and also to ensure the subsequent safe occupation by the newresidents. This Guidance has been written to support and supplement the substantial body of existing advice in this field. Our aim has been to ensure that it is consistent with current bestpractice, it aligns with the Model Procedures and that it provides pragmatic and accessibleadvice which is equally useful and relevant to developers, regulators and their specialist advisors.
