BRIC Talks Webinar: Land Contamination Risk Assessment – A Journey from Initial Site Appraisal to Remediation
About this BRIC Talks webinar
Join the Brownfield Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC) and our guest, Freddie Kennedy of A-squared Studio Engineers Ltd, for the first BRICtalks webinar of 2022.
Brownfield site redevelopment must achieve safe development which is suitable for the proposed use. The legacy of former site use means that there is potential for contamination to be present. However, the presence of contamination does not mean that site remediation will definitely be required in order to achieve safe development. Land contamination risk assessment can be undertaken to assess potential contamination and decide whether the concentrations warrant remediation. This presentation provides an overview of the land contamination risk assessment process in England and how the requirement for remediation is determined in the context of the planning regime. The presentation also introduces how the available risk assessment techniques can be used as part of commercial due diligence to improve risk and opportunity appreciation prior to land transaction.
We will be hosting this BRICtalks webinar by MS Teams. We are keen to meet and share knowledge with businesses of all types working in brownfield planning, remediation and development and we hope you will join us for our next talk on Thursday 10th February 2022.
