Register of Contaminated Land

 

Local Authorities are required to maintain a public register, open for public inspection, of the remediation of contaminated land (defined under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990) in their area, as required by Section 78R of the Environment Protection Act 1990.

It is intended to act as a full and permanent record of all the regulatory action taken by the enforcing authority in relation to the remediation of the land, to include information about the condition of the land. The register will include:

 

(a) remediation notices served by that authority;

(b) appeals against any such remediation notices;

(c) remediation statements or remediation declarations prepared and published under section 78H of the Environmental Protection Act 1990;

(d) in relation to an enforcing authority in England and Wales, appeals against charging notices served by that authority;

(e) notices under subsection (1)(b) or (5)(a) of section 78C of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 which have effect by virtue of subsection (7) of that section as the designation of any land as a special site;

(f) notices under subsection (4)(b) of section 78D of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 which have effect by virtue of subsection (6) of that section as the designation of any land as a special site;

(g) notices given by or to the enforcing authority under section 78Q(4) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 terminating the designation of any land as a special site;
