The Council has a legal obligation to examine its area to identify and deal with contaminated land.
The first obligation was for the Council to produce and adopt a Contaminated Land Strategy.
An update to this strategy was produced in 2008
Dartford Borough Council is required Under Section 78(R) of Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to maintain a Public Register of Contaminated Land. The public register is intended to act as a full and permanent record, open for public inspection, of all regulatory action taken by the enforcing authority in respect of the remediation of contaminated land, and will include information about the condition of land.
Currently, the register does not contain any entries.
If you require information from the Council as to the condition of land, you can obtain this by writing to the Environmental Health Services, Civic Centre, Home Gardens, Dartford, Kent DA1 1DR.
You should include a map that clearly defines the land in question. There is a minimum charge for providing this information, but please note that information may be limited, requiring you to undertake further searches or investigations depending on the extent of information you require.
Minimum charge: £112.00 + VAT for enquiries taking up to 2 hours plus standard photocopying charge.
For enquiries 2 hours and above: Hourly rate of £74.00 plus VAT and standard photocopying charge
