  • Posted

DEFRA’s Expert Panel on Contaminated Land, chaired by Andrew Wiseman, has prepared a short document on their initial observations to help local authorities in their determinations of sites. The information is presented under the four key areas in line with what is required to be included within a risk summary as per section 3.35 of the EPA 1990: Part 2A Contaminated Land Statutory Guidance April 2012.  The headings include: understanding the risks, understanding the uncertainties, putting the risks in context and possible remediation that could occur on the site.
