Brownfield Briefing Award, Best Use of Brownfield Land – October 2011

Beam Parklands in Dagenham has been recognised as the country’s top Brownfield site with a prestigious Brownfield Briefing award for the ‘Best Use of Landfill Or Brownfield Land’ in October 2011.

The judges at the Brownfield Briefing Awards recognised that the benefits delivered by Beam Parklands show clearly that the best use of Brownfield land does not necessarily mean development. What makes this wetland park special is that its primary function is as a flood defence and as such the land protects 570 residential properties, two primary schools, three social clubs and 63 industrial and commercial properties on its doorstep and downstream. However when it’s not flooded, which is the vast majority of the year, it is now a multifunctional open space that the community can use and where nature can thrive.

The Brownfield Briefing Awards have become the flagship event for the brownfield community, and is one of the highest industry accolades that a company can receive. The annual awards recognise technical and conceptual excellence in projects that have been underway over the past 12 months.

The awards are judged by an expert panel from numerous specialities, and new categories are added each year to reflect trends and developments in the industry.
