Brownfield Incentives Program


There are a substantial number of properties within the City of London that have been previously developed for industrial, commercial or other urban uses and may be contaminated as a result of these former activities. Some of these properties, which are commonly referred to as "brownfields", are vacant, under-utilized or abandoned as a result of their current environmental condition and associated liability concerns, resulting in lost property tax revenue, inefficient use of existing infrastructure and lost employment opportunities. If brownfield sites are left vacant or under-utilized, there is additional pressure placed on municipalities to extend new services and infrastructure into outlying "greenfield" locations.

The following report provides more insight into brownfields and possible incentives.
