Regulatory Services Blaby District Council Council Offices Desford Road Narborough Leicester LE19 2EP
Contamination of land arises principally from industrial processes, waste disposal and accidental spillage of contaminants. If not dealt with adequately it can pose a threat to human health, the environment and sustainable economic development.
As a regulator, landowner and planning authority Blaby District Council is responsible for ensuring that:
It leads by example when managing ground contamination and its own land holdings.
The Environmental Services Team acts as advisers to all council departments on land contamination issues. It supplies information, assesses the adequacy of site investigations and remediation measures and monitors the implementation of approved schemes during development.
In accordance with section 78R of The Environmental Protection Act (1990) local authorities must maintain a register of all regulatory action they have undertaken in respect to the remediation of contaminated land. To date, Blaby District Council has made no entry on this register.
Any new information will be added to the register as soon as reasonably practicable.
Blaby District Council has a Contaminated Land Strategy which can be viewed on request.
