Contaminated Land

For more information on how the council administers the contaminated land regulations see the link below to view Dundee City Council's Contaminated Land Strategy (2016).

The presence of contaminated land in Scotland's rural and urban environment is an example of society's failure to achieve sustainable development.  Preventing new contamination and dealing appropriately with existing land contamination is now a key aspect of Scottish Government Policy on sustainable development.  The responsibility for dealing with historically contaminated land has since 2000 been with local authorities, who must ensure that land within their area is suitable for use and does not cause harm to the public or the wider environment.  This page details the Regulations and guidance under which Dundee City Council manages risks from land contamination.
