Summary

This is a joint publication with the National House Building Council and the Environment Agency.

Written by Hugh Mallett (Buro Happold) and Louise Beale (Enviros), it updates ‘R&D 66’, published in 2000, by reference to numerous subsequent publications, including the Environment Agency’s Model Procedures for the Management of Land Contamination (CLR11).

It provides accessible, pragmatic advice for developers, regulators and their specialist advisers, promotes good practice and provides pointers, templates and worked examples. While focusing on housing development, it is also applicable to brownfield or greenfield land affected by contamination.
