Contaminated Land polygons. Note that these sites are better described as 'POTENTIAL Sites of Contamination', and should be assessed on a case by case basis. Also note that data only exists for former West Wiltshire and Salisbury districts. Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 places an obligation on all Local Authorities to inspect their district to identify areas of potentially contaminated land. Once identified this land must then be investigated and remediated (cleaned up/ made safe) if necessary. The legislation applies the principle of the “polluter pays” and therefore as part of the research of a site, past owners and occupiers have to be identified.
