When proposing a development it is a normal planning requirement that an assessment of contamination issues is undertaken, particularly where there is the potential for contamination to be present, or where the development is considered to be vulnerable. It is also the responsibility of the developer to ensure that land contamination issues are considered and where necessary that remediation is undertaken, such that the land is suitable for its intended use.
