Knowledge About, Importance of, and Attitudes Towards Industrial Brownfield Re-use
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to investigate people’s attitudes towards and knowledge about the remediation and re-use of brownfield sites. In order to understand people’s opinions, we administered a questionnaire to 400 residents in the surroundings of Venice. We applied factor analysis to gain better understanding of the structure underlying the respondents’ answers to a set of Likert-scale questions on the possible effects of redeveloping abandoned and contaminated sites. We also conducted a multivariate stepwise regression analysis to define the social structure variables that can best explain people’s attitudes towards environmental issues. Results show that people are mostly motivated by environmental considerations when asked about brownfields reuse.
