Contaminated land

Britain’s long history of industrial activity and the disposal of waste generated by an ever-increasing population have left a legacy of contamination. It has been estimated by the Environment Agency that there may be some 300,000 hectares of land in theUKthat have been affected to some extent as a result of natural phenomena and human activity.

Legislative provision has been made in order that the potential for land to be affected by contamination may be investigated and for land that is found to be contaminated to be addressed. The legislation imposes a requirement on each local authority to adopt a strategy to explain the way in which land that may be affected by contamination, will be identified and contamination remediated.

This must be undertaken in a strategic manner hence, the production of the Contaminated Land Strategy. The Strategy sets out the ways in which Flintshire County Council will proceed with the task.
