Research on scaling up UK urban agriculture

Joy Carey's picture

Forum colleagues, can anyone answer these two questions? 
i) Do you know of any significant (new) research into the potential for scaling up urban agriculture in the UK?
ii) Who would you say are the leading lights on this area of research in the UK?
By urban agriculture I mean food production in the urban/peri-urban area for commercial trade (or CSA style trade) rather than for example, community gardening where food production is not the main goal.
