Sustainable Brownfield Redevelopment: A Solution to Control Urban Sprawl
With the expansion of cities, meeting the requirement of increase in population has always been a concern for the environment. As a consequence of urbanization, surge in tenancy, need for recreational spaces and increased congestion within the cities, its boundaries are expanding rapidly, occupying the outskirts of the same for new infrastructural development. This causes problems such as uncontrolled urban sprawl.
This paper intends to highlight the impact of urban sprawl on a city and how it can be mitigated by implementing strategies like brownfield redevelopment, retrofitting and revitalization of existing structures for mixed use developments which will not only allow us to retain the natural habitats surrounding the city but will also prove to be a suitable sustainable approach towards urban development.
