Environment Law – contaminated land

Posted by Denise Dowen on June 12th 2013
(Blog, environmental law)

Denise Dowen Head of Environment at Stripes Solicitors spoke at an event in London yesterday attended by senior members of the insurance industry. The seminar ‘ContaminatedLand – Possible Pitfalls for the Insurance Industry’ was jointly presented by Phil Crowcroft a leading contaminated land expert at the environmental consultants ERM.


The presentation focussed on the new soil screening levels which DEFRA is going to publish following the revised Part 2A Statutory Guidance that was issued a year ago. The application of the screening levels remains uncertain and creates the potential for future environmental pollution claims. The new guidance has raised controversy and debate continues on what may be considered an unacceptable pollution or health risk.


Denise who is a leading advisor on environmental law spoke about the impact of the changes on legal liability which will affect insurers, landowners, developers and all professional advisors dealing with contaminated land.
