Title: A new methodology proposal for urban regeneration of Brownfield areas; case study of Zonguldak City, Turkey
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: The study focuses on environmental impacts of abandoned urban areas and provides a solution to this problem through scientific methods. Many cities often suffer from lack of sustainable regulations and a successful approach to the urban development. In order to have a successful approach, urban regeneration might prove to be a valid solution for abandoned areas. However, cities still do not have a definite or proper solution for abandoned areas. Therefore, this study conducts a quantitative (Grid Based Model-Hierarchical Cluster Analysis) and qualitative (Strength-Weakness-Opportunity-Threat [SWOT]) analysis with a specific focus on potential solutions for Brownfield areas. The detailed study has placed emphasis on appropriate development for the cities. This practice of urban development has defined healthy and sustainable approaches to the cities. Various analysis techniques included within the newly developed model for abandoned urban areas should provide a more clear-cut sustainable development through new mechanisms. The method employed in the study could bring a new approach to the urban design application. This study includes comprehensive ecological, economic and social analyses through the method proposed as a solution for abandoned industrial areas. This approach extends as far as urban regeneration projects through spatial analyses. The purpose of this study is to explore and provide an approach to solutions for Brownfield areas. The embracing quantitative and qualitative methods contribute to a growing knowledge on the approaches to solutions for Brownfield areas. This scientific approach can lead to a detailed analysis of the issue. This study makes an attempt to incorporate appropriate and sustainable urbanization into urban regeneration experiences in cities. The methods employed in the study could emphasize the right kind of approach to and right implication for regaining urban derelict areas in a theoretical background. Consequently, the study could emphasize an economic, social and ecological approach to abandoned areas in city development. Especially, urban abandoned areas need a new urban development approach, which, in turn, could yield a possible solution in urban regeneration project. In this study, quantitative and qualitative data analyses tailor on urban structure through scientific methods. And finally, to help establish a design decision model on Brownfield areas, this study puts emphasis on the approaches to solutions based on green areas standards in Turkey.
