Intouch Autumn 2014 - Plug pulled for contaminated land funding

The funding for the contaminated land enforcement regime ended this year on 1st April. Although a small amount of Government money will still be available for ongoing remediation projects or for ‘absolute emergency cases' until 1 April 2017, the bad news for residents living on or near to contaminated sites is that they may now be asked to foot the bill for any clean-up.
