East region seminar: Contaminated Land update with 39 Essex Chambers

Tuesday 16 July 2019 Birketts, Cambridge
5pm - 7.30pm
Organised by East region committee

Join us in Cambridge for an update on contaminated land matters.

Contaminated land continues to be a central focus of environmental law, presenting some of the most difficult problems. This seminar will provide an overview of the law governing the topic which goes far beyond Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1991.

Chair and overview - Stephen Tromans QC


Richard Harwood OBE QC – Planning Issues

Jon Darby – Civil Claims

Adam Boukraa – Part IIa update

We will provide:

• a general overview of the topic and key recent developments, for example case law on

the relationship between remediation requirements and insolvency law

• developments under Part IIA, and other relevant statutory regimes

• the vital relationship between planning law and contaminated land – the use of

conditions and section 106 obligations to secure remediation, and how contamination

is treated as part of the local plan process and under the EIA regime, and the use of

brownfield registers

• the underlying common law – recent cases on Japanese knotweed, and the potential

liability of developers, consultants and landlords.

This is a free event and will include drinks and canapés.
