Wigan has smallest amount of brownfield land available for houses in Greater Manchester

Brownfields opportunities are international, as this story from England reminds us.  As described in this article, very high housing demand is driving the redevelopment of Brownfield properties and the number of sites vary significantly by town.

By Andrew Nowell

The borough has just 26 brownfield locations able to accommodate 1,468 houses, according to the engineering, design and project management consultancy firm which looked into the subject.

However, the sites in Wigan which could be turned into housing are, on the whole, reasonably large, as the borough has 113 hectares which could be put to use. This is the fifth-largest amount of land available to GM town halls.
