Aylesbury Vale's Contaminated Land Strategy

What does the Contaminated Land Strategy Cover?

AVDC (now Buckinghamshire Council) formally adopted its Contaminated Land Strategy in August 2001. Since adopting the strategy, a significant amount of work has been undertaken in identifying and risk assessing areas of potential contamination within the Vale.

All councils have to draw up a contaminated land strategy so that we can;

  • Inspect the areas to identify any contaminated land
  • Assess whether “significant harm” or pollution of controlled waters had been, or is being caused
  • Establish responsibilities for remediation of the land and ensure that it takes place
  • Collate records of contaminated land and remedial action that has already been taken
  • Keep a public register detailing the regulatory action taken under the legislation
