Create an inventory and assess the industrial heritage on a brownfield site, as part of the material for informing a comprehensive master plan. This will help to achieve consensus to future actions and uses of historic features without compromising the integrity and cultural history of the site.
Cultural heritage can be reinforced through festivals, events and social links with the industrial past. A compelling and professional PR enhances the acceptance and popularity of the cultural heritage and thus connects the industrial past with modern life.
It is essential to undertake a full assessment of the specific conservation needs, costs and special skills and resources required for effective and sustainable restoration.
Be aware of legislative framework related to industrial heritage assets
Ensure that all interest groups are acknowledged in decisions regarding the treatment of industrial heritage in a brownfield site development.
