Background information and definitions
‘Greenfield sites’ are areas of previously undeveloped land within urban areas, such as agricultural and amenity land, forests, parks and gardens. Such sites may provide important habitat for wildlife and act as wildlife corridors. However, greenfield sites are frequently built upon with the growing pressure for urban development.
