Who pays for the clean up of 'Contaminated Land'?
The Council will pay the cost of investigation into the contaminated status of the land under Part IIA. In the case where remedial works (clean up) are needed to prevent harm due to unacceptable risks, other parties may have to meet the costs.
For more information on how the Council will identify if the site is 'Contaminated Land' and who will be responsible for meeting the costs you will need to make a request for more advice which will be passed to the Environmental Protection Team who deal with contaminated land.
