Land Contamination

Terms of Reference

The Land Contamination Working Party seeks to monitor, influence and improve laws related to land contamination. The group has a particular interest in:

  • issues around Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (the statutory contaminated land regime for Great Britain); and
  • implementation and implications of the Environmental Liabilities Directive.

With the recent appointment of new co-convenors, Jeff Roberts and Emma Tattersdill, we are looking to relaunch the working party and increase its activity. If you would like to join the Working Party please contact either of the convenors
