Increasing emphasis on the planning regime to regulate contaminated land means that as a builder, developer, engineer or planning consultant you need an experienced and pragmatic consultant to help you satisfy your planning conditions or pre-planning requirements. Also with the proposed advent of the National Quality Mark Scheme (NQMS) for self-regulation of contaminated land reports, you need a consultant who is sufficiently certified to be considered a “Suitably Qualified Person” (SQP).
Here at Geo-Integrity we have grown up with the contaminated land regime and our senior staff have, as well as 20 years + experience in the industry, qualifications in both Environmental and Waste Management Law and Contaminated Land Risk Assessment. This ideally places us to provide you with timely, pragmatic, great value, CORRECT advice.
Recent quote from a Senior Environmental Protection Officer working for a Local Authority:-
"I agree with the conclusions of the environmental consultant that no further investigation or remediation is required. In essence the site is suitable for residential use as it stands. I would like to add that Geo-Integrity did an excellent investigation and the information was well presented. Very refreshing."
