CGL‘s next breakfast seminar, Local Authority Requirements for the Verification of Contaminated Land will be on Wednesday 8th February.
Inconsistencies between different local planning authorities in their respective verification requirements for contaminated land can often lead to confusion, conflict and costly delays for developers. In order to ease this process, the Yorkshire and Humber Pollution Advisory Council (YAHPAC) – a group of council bodies stretching from Northumberland to South Lincolnshire – has issued guidance on their collective expectations to ensure consistency for developers working across the different regulatory areas.
This event will be of particular benefit to developers, contractors and related professionals.
The event is held at The Crown Hotel, Harrogate (HG1 2RZ) View Map.
Doors will open at 7.30am to allow networking before the main presentation with bacon baps, pastries and refreshments served. The presentation will be at 8.15 – 9.00 with time afterwards for questions/discussion.

Multi BREEAM award winning and two time BREEAM Assessor of the Year – Barry Rankin, director of Leeds based GWP Project Services will review the benefits (and challenges!) of BREEAM to those tasked with delivering, operating and owning BREEAM assessed buildings. Barry will draw on best practice examples from current and previous projects of how BREEAM has been approached and achieved on an economically justifiable basis and has effected substantial change to the approach to sustainability within the industry. He will also look at the range of BREEAM versions applicable to multiple building types, alternatives within the marketplace and give an insight to where BREEAM may head in the future.
Why build sustainably: A review of UK research, governance and industry activity
Professor Chris Gorse, Director of the Leeds Sustainability Institute, and Dr David Glew, previously seconded from Leeds Beckett University to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, reflect on their research, the position of the government and industrial activity in the UK. While over recent years the government have seemingly taken a back step with its environmental agenda, insights are provided into some of the research being undertaken, the benefits of sustainable building and what the future might hold. The impact of certification schemes such as BREEAM will be explored as will the benefits of understanding energy use and building performance.
