9, Circular 2/2000, Annex 3. 32 The New UK Contaminated Land Regime (e) ensure that the local authority efficiently identifies requirements for the detailed inspection of particular areas of land’’. It is clear that under this an arbitrary approach that, for example, singles out particular past land uses for detailed inspection without considering other aspects of potential risks, would not be acceptable. Assessment of Risks. The next stage in inspecting individual sites continues the risk theme, in that it is all about identifying particular contaminants that present and are capable of causing harm or the pollution of controlled waters and assessing the probability of their doing so—in the terminology of Part IIA, identifying any ‘pollutant linkages’.

The risk assessment process on a site is then completed by an evaluation of the degree of risk presented by any identified pollutant linkage. Is significant harm being caused by the pollutant linkage, or is there a significant possibility of such harm being caused? Or is the pollution of controlled waters being caused, or likely to be caused? In any case where this applies, the land is determined to be ‘contaminated land’; the pollutant linkage is subsequently described as a ‘significant pollutant linkage’.

Local authorities therefore have a duty to try to find problem sites; this duty is given more emphasis in the accompanying statutory guidance which requires each authority to adopt a strategic approach to the process, describing the approach it will adopt in a published document. It will therefore be hard for any authority to expect, legally, to sit on its hands and deal with any explicit complaints about sites made by members of the public or local businesses. Some kind of positive action will be necessary.
