Environmental Protection Act Part IIA
With continued pressure on the re-use of land, there is a need to appreciate that previously-used land may have an industrial legacy that needs to be addressed before the land will be safe to use. This event explores the requirements of the Environmental Protection Act and current guidance in relation to assessing potentially contaminated land and how this can be dealt with to allow the land to be safely re-used.
This practical and informative workshop explores the legislation and guidance that deals with land contamination issues, the public health concerns and how land contamination is managed.
