CONTAMINATED LAND GROUP
REGULAR MEETING

BOOK NOW

CONTAMINATED LAND GROUP MEETING

This group is chaired by Peter Atchison (PA GeoTechnical). 
The vice chairs are Richard Puttock (Stantec) and Jane Thrasher (Jacobs).

Britain’s industrial heritage has left a legacy of contaminated land sites and since the 1990s legislation and planning law has required its clean-up. As a result, the UK has a world-class land remediation industry.

EIC’s Contaminated Land group explores the issue in detail championing brownfield development across the UK. The group brings together members working across the sector - consultants, contractors, and the laboratories that carry out soil testing.

The Contaminated Land group has successfully campaigned for a brownfield first approach to development, spearheaded an award-winning campaign to stop land remediation tax relief, and contributed to setting technical standards around the treatment of asbestos in soils.

The group informs EIC’s thought leadership in this area by producing innovative yet tangible proposals to encourage brownfield, responds to government consultations, holds events, writes articles for industry press, and regularly welcomes policymakers and industry experts as guests.
