Derelict site
This scenario shows an initiative to make use of a derelict area of land in public ownership. Such land exists everywhere, usually attracting rubbish and having a depressing effect on the local neighbourhood.

Often, sites are left vacant for many years. Alternatively, local authorities may carry out some landscaping or sell the land to the private sector for development.

The scenario here shows how a popular use for the site can be generated and implemented, starting off with an ideas competition.

The initiative can be taken by anyone; a local authority, regeneration agency, community group individual or urban design studio at a school of architecture or planning.
