The contaminated land assessment report is a desktop non-intrusive survey which includes a review of historic maps of a site and should include a site walkover to identify sources of contamination. Records held by the Environment Agency or SEPA and examination of the geological and coal mining maps are used to assist in identifying likely risks. The risks are then evaluated to determine if there is a genuine threat to health and the environment and recommendations may be made for any intrusive soil and water sampling where deemed necessary.
