Currently there is no land within the Borough that has been formally classified as 'contaminated land' under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Land contamination enquiries

We maintain a database of potentially contaminated land within the Borough.  Information on specific sites is available upon request, searches cost £30 per hour.  To enquire, please complete a contaminated land enquiry application form and return to envhealth@elmbridge.gov.uk.

Guidance for developers

The redevelopment of previously used sites and derelict land within the Borough will continue to remain the primary mechanism for dealing with contaminated land.  Information can be found on our Planning Policy webpages.

The recognised best practice in managing land contamination is available on the GOV.UK website.
