With land being such an essential part of the UK, It’s vital that it is utilised to its full potential. Being an island, we are squeezed on both sides by the sea, so all of the available land mass must be used as much as possible. In the past, this has mainly been for farming and agricultural use. Still, since the Industrial Revolution, much of our landscape has been converted over to the production of goods and services or products. Generating power from this land is also essential, but it has left us with many scars. Factories and manufacturing plants now become Wasteland, and using them again can be difficult. Land Remediation Services Can provide the answer by converting these sites to something useful. Here are some great examples.
Salford Quays. As the canals came to an end and there was a reduction in water transport, the area of Salford Quays became run down due to lack of use. Redundant as an area, it has been converted to A media and commercial area with expanded residential zones. There is a significant BBC presence there.
Another great example is how the 2012 Olympics were catered for in the city of London. Rather than build the main Stadium on a precious green belt, a part of East London known for its industrialised and polluted land was remediated to be reused entirely as the centre for the Olympic activities, such as the village and sports events plus fan zones.
