Frontier Science: Protecting human health when we build on brownfield sites - T53

Thursday 5th January 2017

16:00 - 17:00

Speakers

  1. Professor Chris Collins - Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences, University of Reading

With the increasing urbanisation and an expanding population the UK has a well-publicised need for housing. If we are to protect the greenbelt we must use existing urban land i.e. brownfield. The majority of such areas have legacy contamination from their previous industrial use. In order to protect the public health we must identify any pollutants at development sites. The assessment process undertaken during this evaluation in the UK is based on risk not hazard. It is important we maintain this approach is we are to maintain a sustainable building programme.Potential for learning: Balancing risk and hazard; Movement of chemicals in the environment; Exposure assessment for human health; balancing housing need with access to open space
