In the coming decades a large number of nuclear facilities will reach the end of their useful lives and require decommissioning. Many of these facilities will be decommissioned with the aim of either replacing them with new facilities that serve the same purpose or reusing the site for another, completely different purpose. By recognizing and promoting the redevelopment potential of facilities and their sites at the design stage or earlier in their operating life, it is possible to enhance the prospects for worthwhile redevelopment, offsetting the costs of decommissioning and ensuring that best use is made of the material, land and human resources associated with each facility. A range of factors to consider has been identified and illustrated using case studies drawn from Member States, and practical guidance has been provided for involved parties to help promote successful and effective redevelopment of decommissioned nuclear installations in the future.
