Dear Sir,

I am a student at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas USA. We are currently working on a project that includes doing a feasibility study on starting a company in the United Kingdom. Our group has chosen to study opening an environmental services firm specializing in Land Contamination. We do have a couple of questions that are stumping us and wondering if you could help? 1. What kind of license is required in the UK? 2. Is the monitoring process working, if so, what are the repercussions for failing to meet the standards set forth by the Act? 3. Is anything else we should be aware of ?

Many thanks

Dear Jason,

Re: your query about contaminated land in the U.K.

1. What kind of license is required in the UK?

2. Is the monitoring process working, if so, what are the repercussions for failing to meet the standards set forth by the Act?

    Due to the recent implementation of the Act and the problems associated with the Secretary of State's draft guidance for contaminated land, I would suspect that few local authorities are in a position to be monitoring numbers of sites under their control. There is still a major problem within the U.K. regarding who should pay for the cost of remediation of a contaminated site. It is still seen that the polluter should pay, however, due to the fact that there may have been numerous polluters and that may be now none existant, problems are abound.

    I suggest that you obtain information from Environment Business Magazine (U.K.) and Contaminated Land (Graham, T; 1996; Jordans) and Contaminated Land (Tromans, S + Turrall-Clarke, R; 1996; Sweet + Maxwell).

I hope the above information has helped you with your project. If you need more information please contact me on +44 181 331 9969 or fax me on +44 181 331 8205 or send me an email.

Regards

Robert Dunn
