Land reclamation

We promote the reclamation or improvement of derelict, neglected or unsightly land utilising grants.

Our role is to facilitate reclamation projects as they are often central to the regeneration of the economy. We select, determine the priorities, and provide finance at an appropriate level for these projects.

We are responsible for the implementation of our reclamation schemes. The design work on reclamation schemes is undertaken by engaging engineering consultants and the construction work is undertaken by appointing civil engineering contractors.

We commission design work in conjunction with residents and other council departments and private sector companies. Excellent examples of such work is the reclamation and development of Wood Lane, Partington, Moss View Playing Fields and Hawthorn Lane.

The Team also administers a revenue budget for the maintenance and management of land reclamation sites.
