Request a contaminated land search

Making or requesting a contaminated land enquiry

We can help you find out if land is contaminated through a detailed contaminated land search request.


The fee for the first hour of a contaminated land enquiry is £86.

Every hour after that is £82 per hour.

Making your enquiry

Your request must allow a minimum of three working weeks for us to respond because it may involve a search through historic data, previous investigations and liaison with external agencies.

These requests must be:

  • made in writing
  • accompanied by a local map clearly marking the boundary of the land
  • reasonable and specific in the questions asked, for example, "is the council aware of any land within 250 metres of the site which has been used for waste disposal to landfill?"

Our response will be based on the information available from sources.

In all cases, please seek advice from your solicitor and/or an appropriately qualified and competent contaminated land expert, especially if any doubt exists related to ground contamination.

Other sources for contaminated land information

  • planning services: you may wish to contact planning services for information related to contaminated land conditions attached to a planning approval and status of those conditions. For more information, call: 01483 505050
