The term contaminated land covers a spectrum of conditions varying from those sites which satisfy the statutory definition of Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act to those which have no significant effect on any party or environment. Similarly the term covers sites for which the magnitude of contamination ranges from gross industrial pollution to minimal concentrations of natural or anthropogenic substances.

There is not, however, a one-to-one correspondence between the two spectra discussed above and detailed consideration of all the factors associated with a site are necessary to determine the correct approach. Following the DEFRA/EA model procedures for management of contamination allows a robust and repeatable approach to be adopted.
