Argyll Environmental, the Brighton-based environmental risk management consultancy, will be hosting three specialist workshops on Contaminated Land Management for the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH).
The CPD workshops will provide environmental health officers, planning officers, consultants and developers within local authorities with the knowledge and skills to deal with contaminated land, as part of future planning applications.
Led by two Senior Environmental Consultants from Argyll, the workshops will take place in London (6 September), Leeds (18 October) and Bristol (17 January).
As well as discussing the sources and risks of contamination, the experts will guide attendees through the latest legislation and guidance for the UK’s approach to managing land contamination, and explain how this can be applied in real life scenarios.
Jaime Bainbridge, Consultancy Manager at Argyll Environmental said: “We are delighted to support the CIEH in delivering three CPD workshops on the topic of land contamination management. With the recent revision to the government’s National Planning Policy Framework, the workshops are an ideal opportunity for planning professionals to fully understand the current requirements of assessing and handling contaminated land as part of a planning application. Registration is now open and all attendees will gain five-hours of CPD.”
