Urban development commonly requires the regeneration of land from a range of uses, many of which leave unacceptable contamination. Appropriate land re-use depends on a range of policy and technical factors.
This class provides and introduction to the regulatory framework for redevelopment, including planning advice and legislation. This framework is underpinned by good risk assessment. Participants should have some background in risk assessment, or take the module in Site Investigation and Risk Assessment.
Appropriate strategies for remediation of contaminated land demand an understanding of remedial technologies and a sound understanding of the technical basis of risk assessments.
The course will allow decisions on land regeneration and remediation to be based on technical solutions, risk management, planning and financial constraints.
