“Preserving biodiversity in brownfield redevelopments”
Jo Sinclair will share the experience of LBBD at Barking Riverside, a new residential development based on a former brownfield site beside the river Thames. TURAS researchers have worked with LBBD to look at how green infrastructure can be best incorporated into the development to conserve the valuable biodiversity found on the site prior to development and to manage urban stormwater. This includes the design and monitoring of green roofs and ground level landscaping.
Jo Sinclair has worked with LB Barking and Dagenham since July 2001. Her role has been to work with SMEs and larger companies to promote the health of the local economy. She has done extensive work on getting SMEs into supply chains. She has also worked on preparing SMEs for retorfit, for manufacturing into the off-site manufactured market and in greening SMEs. She has played a part in the development of the London Sustainable Industries Park.
