Land contamination is a material consideration under planning. Under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 local authorities also have a legal duty to inspect their area for the purpose of identifying and dealing with statutory Contaminated
Land. The management of land contamination begins with an appreciation of the relevant legal context and formulating a robust conceptual site model (CSM), which summarises the relevant source-pathway-receptor linkages.
This course will provide an insight into the relevant legislation and explains how the CSM is central to the risk assessment process. It highlights the sources of uncertainties associated with land contamination and the importance of accounting
for these within the risk management process. It will also outline the phased approach to land contamination management recommended in CLR11 and BS10175 and explore the requirements of the first step of this approach – the Phase 1 assessment or Preliminary
