Contaminated Land Public Register

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 Part IIa requires Stroud District Council to maintain a public register. A register entry will be created when one of the following happens:

  • the land is designated a special site
  • a remediation declaration is published
  • a remediation statement is published, or
  • a remediation notice is served.

This means the Council does not have to put the notification that the land is contaminated land on the register until one of these actions has been undertaken. At this point much of the information that was contained in the original notification will be included in the register entry.

The regulations specify the information to be included in the register. Therefore the register will include:

  • remediation notices
  • site information and details of site reports obtained by the authority relating to remediation notices
  • designation of sites as 'special sites'
  • site specific guidance issued by the Environment Agency
  • remediation declarations, remediation statements and notifications of claimed remediation
  • any appeals lodged against remediation and charging notices
  • convictions for non compliance with notices
  • statement regarding the existence of confidential information

The absence of an entry on the register does not guarantee that

  • the land is free from contamination, as it may not have been fully assessed
  • the contamination present does not pose significant risk
  • contamination present is not polluting controlled waters

If you require any further information, then please do not hesitate to contact our contaminated land officer on 01453 754478
