Contaminated land contains substances which are, or have the potential to be, hazardous to health or the environment, including controlled waters and aquifers.

A contaminated land assessment can be required as part of a planning application or to discharge planning conditions imposed by a local planning authority, the Environment Agency or the National House Building Council (NHBC). The assessment is used to evaluate the potential for a pollution linkage and to consider the level of risk and to determine the actions required to manage or mitigate the risk. They generally follow a phased approach.
