Contaminated Land

We’re here to give you clarity on land contamination

At an early stage, we make sure we rule out further work so that you can carry on with your development at the earliest opportunity.

How We Can Help

In the UK, the contaminated land regime follows a standard process.

It has 4 stages starting with Phase 1: Desktop Study, followed by Phase 2: Site Investigation and Phase 3 & 4: Remediation & Validation.

At Your Environment, we keep each of these stages as cost-effective and non-disruptive as possible. Our purpose is to guide our clients through this process and provide the liaison between everyone involved.
