The State of Contaminated Land in Wales April 2016

Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a statutory duty on the appropriate agency to produce a report on progress made in identifying and remediating contaminated land. As the new environmental body for Wales assuming this role, Natural Resources Wales has produced the first ‘Wales only’ report on progress under the Part 2A contaminated land regime


The report presents key facts and figures gathered from Natural Resources Wales and local authorities across Wales on contaminated land sector activity. In particular it presents information on statutory duties carried out under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (the contaminated land regime) since its introduction in Wales on 1st July 2001 until 31st December 2013.
