Land in limbo - making the best use of vacant urban spaces
public space lessons
Briefing showing how to transform vacant urban open spaces into valuable public assets.
Vacant urban open space is a valuable resource – but it’s often overlooked and underused. These derelict and neglected spaces, frozen between long-term uses, are wasted opportunities.
Land in limbo looks at how to transform these spaces into public assets. It outlines the obstacles faced, the actions required and the benefits to be gained from bringing vacant land back into use.
This briefing is a useful reference for local authorities, landowners and regeneration professionals as well as a call for a change in approach towards valuable vacant sites.
