Stopping the cowboy contractors – an auditing scheme for land condition

SiLC are proposing an audit scheme for projects that bring back into use previously developed land that is affected by contamination.

In the move to establish better regulation, the scheme will offer a valuable opportunity to support sustainable development and which could stimulate economic growth.

Phil Crowcroft, Chairman of SiLC, said:

“The SiLC Register has great potential to contribute towards better regulation by helping regulator and regulated find a common process to deliver sustainable remediation of brownfield sites in accordance with the planning process.

“Whether mandatory of voluntary, it should improve the relationship between all parties seeking to bring land into effective use, for the benefit of communities, the public and the private sectors.”
