Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990
Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 is the legislation that the contaminated land team enforces. Information on the Part 2A regime can be found on the Department of the Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) website.
The site also includes information on DEFRA policy, a Frequently Asked Questions section relating to Part 2A and external links to other sources of contaminated land information.
Contaminated Land Register
All local authorities are required to maintain a public register of contaminated land within their borough to comply with Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990 and the Contaminated Land (England) Regulations 2000.
The document below lists all of the areas of land within the Borough which form part of the public register, together with the dates of any appropriate notices, declarations and statements.
The contaminated land register is also available to view, at request, at the Council offices in Crewe (Municipal Buildings on Earle Street). We should be contacted to arrange a suitable appointment, if necessary.
Work done under Part 2A
In 2013, the Barony Playing Fields, Nantwich were investigated under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, due to their former use. A Non-Technical Summary of the works has been produced.
Further works undertaken through the Part 2A regime will be presented on this part of the website once a satisfactory point in the investigations has been reached, and updated as necessary.
