Details of the section 78 contaminated land register are recorded on this webpage. The webpage will be updated when any entries are made.
Under section 78 R(1) of Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, each enforcing authority has a duty to maintain a Register of contaminated land as defined under the Act. Regulation 13 and Schedule 3 of the Contaminated Land (England) Regulations 2006 prescribes the particular details to be included in the Register.
The register is not a register of contaminated or potentially contaminated land. The register is a permanent record of all regulatory action (e.g. remediation notices and statements) undertaken to ensure the remediation of any site which has been formally determined as contaminated land under Part IIA. Any land satisfactorily remediated prior to a remediation notice being served will not appear on the register. The register will also record the 'Designation' of Special Sites.
The Council does not have any entries on the Register at this time.
