The Contaminated Land Expert Panel has been set up by Defra to support Local Authorities in England and Wales in making decisions on whether land is or is not
contaminated under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (as amended). The Panel’s work focuses on cases that are not straightforward and where there is ambiguity over whether the land is considered legally contaminated or not (i.e. which side of the Category 2 / Category 3 does the land lie).
In December 2015 they published their first case study.
