How to report

If you'd like us to investigate a contaminated land issue please contact providing as much detail as you can. You can include supporting documentation such as photographic evidence to assist us with our investigations.

What happens next

  • We'll decide if an area meets the legal definition of contaminated land
  • We'll act as enforcing authority for contaminated land site. This is unless it meets the definition of a 'special site'. In this case Scottish Environmental Protection Agency is the enforcing authority
  • We'll keep a public register of contaminated land in the area
