Gateshead Brownfield Ground Risk Calculator

Gateshead Council have commissioned the BGS to develop an adapted version of the Brownfield Ground Risk Calculator to conduct an appraisal of their brownfield land. Gateshead has a number of small brownfield sites with significant risks from coal mining and industrial legacies that impact development viability.

The Gateshead brownfield ground risk calculator builds on work with the Connected Places Catapult funded by the Planning Delivery Fund. This work identified the need for small developers working in Gateshead to understand ground constraints better. The calculator will address this need by providing a publically accessible web tool as part of the Gateshead digital planning tool.

The BGS continues to work closely with Gateshead Council and its local developer community to help align the tool to their needs.
