Environmental problems Contaminated land & environmental searches

Development on contaminated land

It is recognised that a lot of potentially contaminated sites will be dealt with by redevelopment through the planning system. We are responsible for assessing planning applications against available information and recommending whether a contaminated land condition is required. We also liaises with developers and their agents to ensure that contaminated land conditions are discharged.

Due to the complex and technical nature you may wish to refer to guidance note for applications, developers, land owners and consultants.
