With contributions from international academics and practitioners, this International Conference of the British Land Reclamation Society, addresses the current issues and challenges for restoration and regeneration of land and communities during a period of economic uncertainty and recovery.

The conference is to be held from 7th to 9th September in Pontypridd, Wales where land reclamation over the past 40 years has resulted in major transformations across the country providing new sites for commercial, residential and environmental renewal – an ideal backdrop from which to consider the technological and engineering developments that can be applied on an international scale.

It will focus not only on the technical aspects of land restoration but also on regeneration including planning and community involvement in the successful environmental, economic and social recovery of such sites.

Topics covered include:
◦Planning, regeneration and economics
◦Tackling contamination
◦Risk assessment
◦Difficult sites
◦Legislation and legal liability
◦Biodiversity and reclamation
◦Soils and reclamation
◦Improving water quality
◦Innovative techniques
◦Reclamation and regeneration case studies including:
Bargoed - regeneration of a town and its environs after closure of the colliery
Coed Darcy - a former oil refinery site with particular issues regarding contaminants
Ebbw Vale steelworks - a huge and complex site for decontamination and redevelopment
Brecon Beacons - soil and ecological restoration after pipeline construction
