Contaminated land has been an issue of concern to lawyers for some years, but not until 1 April 2000 has there been a specific legal regime dealing with it. Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 constitutes such a regime, of formidable complexity. Contaminated Land: the New Regime provides a comprehensive guide for all involved with the new system, whether advising the enforcement authorities of those who may be liable for clean-up costs.
The Act and its supporting Guidance raise many difficult problems of interpretation and practical implementation, which are explored in this book. Readers will find help in understanding the legislation, in deciding whether land is or is not ""contaminated"", and in pursuing or responding to enforcement action. A number of key precedents and source materials are reproduced, so that everything the practitioner needs is to hand.
