Register of contaminated land

Why does the Council have a public register?

All local authorities are required to maintain a public register of contaminated land within their borough. This is in accordance with:

  • Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990;
  • and the Contaminated Land (England) Regulations 2006.

What information will I find on the register?

The regulations clearly state what should be put on the register, including copies of appropriate notices, declarations and statements. The register aims to provide a permanent record of land that is, or has been classed as a Special Site and any actions taken, or proposed to remediate the land in question.

At what point does a site go on to the register?

A site will not appear on the register until one of the specified documents, as defined by the regulations, has been recorded by us. 

Please note: Sites of concern, under investigation and those determined as contaminated land will not appear on the register. This is unless further regulatory action has been taken, such as remediation declaration made.

How often is the register updated?

The Council has a statutory duty to inspect its borough to identify potential contaminated land, as defined by Part IIA. As a result, the register is under constant review. We try to keep the register as up to date as possible.
