Welcome to our Network
The Ireland Brownfield Network was established in February 2012 by a collective of leading brownfield practitioners operating in various professions throughout Ireland. In 2017 a new committee was elected.
The Network aims to encourage constructive dialogue and interaction amongst all those involved in the redevelopment of brownfield land in the island of Ireland. In doing so, the collective learning experiences, best practices and effective strategies can be shared to the betterment of brownfield redevelopment in Ireland.
The Network is run and organised by 10 committee volunteers from various professions involved with brownfield redevelopment. The network is free to join and open to all.
What are brownfield sites?
The Network considers brownfield land to be land that:
- has been affected by its former use or by the use of its surrounding lands
- is derelict and underused
- may have real or perceived contamination problems; and
- requires intervention to bring it back to beneficial use
