CGL GEAwards 2016


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.

  • Jonathan Shaw and Mark Stringer will take a closer look at YAHPAC guidance and how it can be applied to streamline the contaminated land verification process.
  • Drawing on examples of both good and bad practice, Jonathan and Mark will take a particular focus on the verification of cover systems and gas protection measures.

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.
