Local Authorities are required to maintain a public register, open for public inspection, of the remediation of contaminated land (defined under Part IIA) 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:
Appeals against remediation notices
Appeals against charging notices
Designation of special sites
Notification of claimed remediation
Convictions for offences under Section 78M of the Act
Guidance issued under Section 78V(1) of the Act
Other matters prescribed by Regulations
The register will be available for public viewing at the Civic Centre, Monday to Friday during normal office hours. Please contact the Environmental Protection Unit on 01895 277018 to make an appointment. There is no charge for viewing the public register, however, there will be a charge for the photocopying of information.
