Choosing a Competence Based Governance Role in Brownfield Redevelopment Processes

This paper describes how the redevelopment of brownfields in the Netherlands has stagnated. The fact that the central directing role of municipalities is abandoned is often considered as a cause of the stagnation occurring within these processes. Currently, municipalities can only manage brownfield developments in strategic alliances with different public and private actors. The precise role of municipalities as governor within these alliances is still very indistinct. This paper describes a software model that enables municipalities to determine a suitable governance role in brownfield redevelopment processes. This is realized by distinguishing four types of governance roles and four factors determining the necessity of involving actors in the process. Depending on the presence of these factors in a brownfield redevelopment project, the suitability of the several governance roles can be specified. The method also offers municipalities the possibility of developing their capabilities and related levels of competences based on the predefined governance role they want to practice.
