Land that can easily be developed for residential use is becoming rarer, so ground contamination is increasingly a risk factor to resolve as part of the development works.

Join Amanda Stubbs, Partner in Trowers' Planning and Environment team and André Gilleard, Director of AG Geo-Consultants and qualified SiLC, for a briefing on how to manage the legal risks contractually and the practical risks through investigations, reporting and discussions with the relevant regulators.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Key legal risks: Part 2A liability, planning and development risks, and civil liability 
  • General drafting principles for buyers and sellers 
  • Early identification of abnormal risks
  • Planning conditions and negotiating with local planning authorities
  • Materials Management Plans and maximising soil re-use
