Contaminated land register
We maintain a contaminated land public register of certain information relating to the remediation of contaminated land and not a list of former industrial sites or a record of land which is being investigated.
There is only one area of land within the city boundary that has been formally remediated and cleaned up.
A public register entry is created when any of the following happens:
- the land is designated as a 'Special Site' (in which case the Environment Agency becomes the relevant enforcing authority);
- a 'remediation declaration' is published;
- a 'remediation statement' is published; or
- a 'remediation notice' is served.
