Contaminated land

In the UK and many other countries, industrial development has caused some areas of land to become contaminated. In many cases, the land has been contaminated for a long time.

Contaminated land can cause harm to human health, property and the environment, including water supplies and wildlife habitats.

How we can help
Hull City Council can identify contaminated sites within the city and take action to have them cleaned. We can also provide advice and information to solicitors, developers and members of the public on potentially contaminated sites and investigate complaints about land contamination.

We aim to manage contaminated land effectively using risk assessment and risk management principles. We look at the land’s current use and environmental setting to do this.

We have produced an inspection strategy after consulting with a number of external agencies, council departments, landowners, land contamination consultants and other stakeholders.

Charges for contaminated land information for  April 2008 - March 2009 are full £105 or partial £52.50 (inc VAT) per site.

If you are concerned that you might own or rent a site that could be contaminated, or you wish to develop a site that has a history of previous development, please contact us.
