Contaminated Land

Is it safe to live on Contaminated Land?

In most cases the risks associated with living on sites that have been previously used by industry are low. More often than not, any effects are to the value of the property due to perceived risk rather than actual effects to the health of occupiers or to the environment. However if you are concerned about potential problems you can ask for advice from the Contaminated Land Officer in the Public Protection Division.
