Brownfi elds functional and spatial distinction ? Brno city model
Brownfields rehabilitation is currently a complicated problem in the Czech Republic. Investor distrust concerning the brownfi elds potential is a great negative in comparison with ?greenfi eld? construction areas. Th is is implied by the unequal market environment conditions when the investors are discouraged by high investment costs of the restoration or decontamination of the brownfields, which are frequently connected with the need for thorough environmental cleanup and removal of unsuitable structures. Revitalization of a large number of location is still hindered by environmental hazards, investment intensity and frequently also by complicated and unexplained property rights. The City of Brno, just like many other cities of similar sizes and with similar manufacturing traditions of the past, has decent problems with the brownfi elds locations. The first step, represented by the identifi cation and detailed passportization of the individual locations, has already been taken. Right now and in the near future it will be necessary to effectively and purposefully decide about their future uses. Despite the specifi c characteristics of the Brno brownfields, which are signifi cantly concentrated near the historical centre of the city, there are many options available for their revitalizations. New industrial and business zone construction support at the territory of the current brownfi elds has become a good business opportunity. Th e current and frequently discussed National Strategy for Brownfi elds Rehabilitation is one of the decisive conceptual national-level activities, which could significantly support the idea of a new utilization of the old and currently abandoned areas not only in Brno but also elsewhere in the Czech Republic.
