Scotland contains numerous sites of contamination, which will require assessing prior to release for re-development. This is likely to increase, as many local authorities start to implement their contaminated land strategies over the next few months. While some construction professionals are well versed in contaminated land risk assessment, many, including some from local authorities will be facing such responsibilities for the first time. This workshop examined the problems that some local authorities may have with the implementation of the contaminated land regime. It also reviewed how different phases of risk assessment should be carried out including the use of Contaminated Land Exposure Assessment (CLEA) methodology and other software such as the Contaminated Land Site Evaluation and Prioritisation Tool (ConSEPT) used in the assessment process. Key topics covered included the setting of risk assessment objectives, risk evaluation and communication, and the demonstration of good practice.
