Planning toolkit: Contamination

Without duplicating pollution controls, the planning authority must be satisfied that there will be no unacceptable risks to health or the environment from the proposed works or use, for future occupiers and those carrying out the development.


Some of the issues to consider

  • Will the proposal involve the reclamation of contaminated land?
  • Is a Contaminated Land Risk Assessment required to identify all potential sources of contamination and provide details about the nature of any risks to human health and the wider environment?
  • Does the proposal result in soil pollution?
