The NSW EPA has reviewed and is updating its guidance to ensure that reports prepared by consultants on contaminated land contain the right information in a suitable format to allow efficient review by regulators, site auditors, and other interested parties.
- describe the stages of reporting on the management of contaminated land and the objective of the reports for each stage
- provide checklists of reporting requirements for consultants to use when reporting on contaminated sites.
For contaminated sites subject to planning processes such as a rezoning application, development application and/or building approval, consult the appropriate planning authority and planning guidance including the:
- State Environmental Planning Policy No 55 – Remediation of Land (SEPP 55).
- Managing Land Contamination Planning Guidelines SEPP 55 – Remediation of Land (Department of Urban Affairs and Planning and EPA 1998) (Planning Guidelines) (or updates).
