The CLR11 document has long been the principal guidance for assessing the risks of contaminated land. Despite being archived in 2016, CLR11 is still the framework for which regulatory bodies (EA, NIEA, SEPA) and Local Authorities require contaminated land risk assessments to adhere to.
The Environment Agency have released reformed land contamination guidance based on the principles of CLR11.
The updated guidance is now web-based and is called: Land contamination: risk management (LCRM)
The new guidance was published in June 2019 and is currently undergoing a 6 month review period.
After the review period CLR11 will be permanently withdrawn, and LCRM will become the guidance framework for assessing the risks of land contamination.
Our contaminated land experts ensure all our assessments adhere to the relevant guidance to meet the requirements of the regulator and local authorities.
If you require a contaminated land risk assessment please get in touch with Francis McAuley.
