Site contamination assessment

Under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016, the planning system is required to assess and manage risks posed by known or potential site contamination to enable the safe development and use of land.

Various instruments specify the procedures that apply to the assessment of potential site contamination when land use is proposed to change to a more sensitive use and to ensure land is suitable for use in circumstances where it is, or may have been, subject to site contamination.
