Natural Resources Wales: The state of contaminated land in Wales: this is the first ‘Wales only’ report on progress under the contaminated land regime in Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The report presents key facts and figures gathered from Natural Resources Wales and local authorities across Wales on statutory duties carried out under the regime since its introduction in Wales on 1 July 2001 until 31 December 2013. The findings include that all Welsh local authorities have produced and published their inspection strategy for contaminated land, and the majority of the local authorities have not changed their priorities within their inspection strategy since it was first drafted. By end of December 2013, 47% of the local authorities reported that they are behind target towards achieving the objectives of their inspection strategy. By the end of December 2013, 175 sites had been determined under Part 2A, including two designated special sites. 95 sites have been fully remediated by the local authorities at an estimated cost of £3.7m and two further special sites have been fully remediated at a cost of around £1.2m. Site remediation has been mainly paid for by the Welsh Government’s Contaminated Land Capital Fund Scheme prior to its withdrawal in 2010/11 and also via Class A appropriate persons. (April 2016)
