For a charge of £67 per location the Environmental Health Section will carry out a search of historic maps to establish whether contamination is likely and to assist the developer in deciding whether they need to investigate or remediate the land prior to further development.

There are currently no entries on the public register of areas designated as contaminated land under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act.
