Abstract / Description of output

This chapter by Simon Bell, Anna Wilczynska and Jekaterina Balicka focuses on the recent wave of rejuvenation of docklands and ports, which are often the largest scale of blue space planning and design being undertaken at present, often being part of whole urban regeneration areas. It starts with an overview of docklands and ports, a history of how they developed and how many old ports and docklands have been released from industry and made available for redevelopment. The main risks and benefits for health and well-being are described. Some principles being adopted for redevelopment into mixed-use urban settings are summarised. Then a selection of iconic projects is introduced, and each is evaluated and compared with the others against the set of criteria already defined in Chapter 10.
