Forest of Dean District Council
Contaminated Land Inspection Strategy

Under new regulations which came into force in April 2000, all local authorities in England must inspect land in their district for the presence of contamination.
Each local authority must publish an inspection strategy detailing how it plans to undertake this inspection in a rational, ordered and efficient manner.

Forest of Dean District Council has taken the lead in the field of contaminated land regulation by being the first local authority in the country to publish a consultation draft of its inspection strategy. This has provided a template which many other local authorities have adapted to suit their local needs. Detailed consultation has taken place with other statutory agencies and with Town and Parish Councils in the District, and the input has helped shape the final version of the strategy presented here.

Dealing with contaminated land is an important issue for the Forest of Dean District Council, both in terms of preventing damage to human health and the environment, and in encouraging development on brownfield sites in preference to greenfield sites. If you have any concerns or information relating to contaminated land, contact the Council's Environmental Protection Team by telephone, post or e-mail.
