Memo  Redundant defence sites offer a range of opportunities to planners, architects and local communities to redevelop large areas, bringing new life to often neglected parts of towns. The opportunities are common to many countries and the papers to be presented at the conference will stress this common feature and help to share experiences of the transformation of defence sites to civilian uses around the world. The conference objective is to raise the knowledge of the scale, design and functions of defence sites. It will bring a better understanding of the issues raised by their redundancy and the implications of different disposal processes for the land.
