Contaminated Land Remediation

Bristol, South UK

Where contamination in site soils is shown to constitute a potential risk then remediation methods will be required. This may be simple or complex depending on the findings of the risk assessment we carry out.

Remediation of soil on contaminated land is not just excavation and disposal! The land decontamination methods used by our team based in Bristol will depend on the specific nature of the soil contaminants and the site. These will vary also depending on what receptors are going to be impacted such as future site users, surface waters, groundwater etc. Every site we work with across the UK is unique and the solution that is relevant to your site will be too. Methods of decontamination may include bioremediation, chemical oxidation, solidification/stabilisation in addition to ex-situ land remediation methods. Excavation and disposal may be the best option in some circumstances but is a last resort where other methods are more suitable. To establish what contaminated land solution is most appropriate, an options appraisal should be carried out by a member of our Bristol team which will consider all of these factors. Please contact us for advice on what techniques may be suitable for your site, wherever you are in the South or beyond.

Land remediation tax relief is a relief from UK corporation tax. It provides a deduction of 100% plus an additional deduction of 50% against corporation tax for qualifying expenditure. This can be claimed by commercial property owners, investors and developers. In addition to the actual land decontamination and remedial solutions there are various qualifying activities including preparatory activities such as investigation works, regulatory liaison, laboratory costs, employment and labour costs, capital expenditure, sub-contractor costs. We work with partners who can advise on these aspects. Please contact us for more information.
