Local authorities in Northern England recently published guidance on their specific requirements for the verification of contaminated land. To explain the requirements, CGL’s Harrogate team will hold a Breakfast Seminar on Local Authority Requirements for the Verification of Contaminated Land on Wednesday 8th February at The Crown Hotel in Harrogate.

Inconsistencies between different local planning authorities in their respective verification requirements for contaminated land can often lead to confusion, conflict and costly delays for developers. In order to ease this process, the Yorkshire and Humber Pollution Advisory Council (YAHPAC) – a group of council bodies stretching from Northumberland to South Lincolnshire – has issued guidance on their collective expectations to ensure consistency for developers working across the different regulatory areas.

  • Jonathan Shaw and Mark Stringer will take a closer look at YAHPAC guidance and how it can be applied to streamline the contaminated land verification process.
  • Drawing on examples of both good and bad practice, Jonathan and Mark will take a particular focus on the verification of cover systems and gas protection measures.
Doors will open at 7.30am to allow networking before the main presentation with bacon baps, pastries and refreshments served. The presentation will be at 8.15 – 9am, with time afterwards for questions/discussion.

If you have any queries about the event or on local authority requirements for the verification of contaminated land, please email Jonathan at jonathans@cgl-uk.com or call 01423 276000.
