This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar. Duration of webinar 30 mins. It is available from 22 May 2023 to 31 March 2025.

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

This Toolbox Talk will explore what practice is "good" practice and why any claims of or requirements for "best" practice should be resisted.  Technical guidance, and especially the Land Contamination Risk Management guidance, is at the core of good practice.  New guidance from the BSI and others will be summarised. The process of establishing good practice, and how you can get involved in this process, will be described. It will summarise what good practice can be on PFAS from CIRIA, the Environment Agency, the UK Committee of Toxicity, NICOLE and beyond.

Contaminated Land Toolbox Talks

Toolbox Talk No. 24 - Practical Experience with Planning Issues - from 25 September 2023

This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar.  It is available from 25 September 2023 to 31 March 2025

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

Much work on contaminated land management takes place as a result of sites being redeveloped and thus in the context of the Planning regime. This webinar will talk about what helps sites affected by land contamination go through planning smoothly,  illustrated by experiences (good and less good) of a range of recent sites.  Land contamination is usually of only minor materiality in development planning but is a much more significant material  consideration in development control. The pros and cons of standard and bespoke planning conditions for both applicant  and regulator will be discussed.  The benefits to applicants and regulators of adhering to the Land Contamination Risk Management guidance on report contents will be discussed.

Contaminated Land Toolbox Talks

Toolbox Talk No. 29 - Verification for Planning Do's and Don'ts - from 22 January 2024

This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar.  It is available from 22 January 2024.

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

The endpoint for a site affected by contamination is for all potential contaminant linkages relevant to the development to have been demonstrably broken.  One way this is achieved is via verification. Verification plans should be designed before the remediation starts and need to be properly executed and recorded.  Often lines of evidence will be used to demonstrate the land has been rendered safe and suitable for use.  The advantage of formulating and then implementing a verification plan tied into the site specific planning conditions and local development plan will be discussed. The conceptual site model is the simplest means of communicating how contaminant linkages have been broken. The (very limited) role of classical statistics will be explored. This webinar will talk about good practices for verification with examples from real sites.
