Proposed Changes to Contaminated Site Regulations

Jun 20, 2018 12:00 AM


One change is to enable, for certain contaminated sites, the recording of environmental notices in the Land Registry. The other is about who signs forms related to contaminated sites. Our objectives with these changes are to:

• help ensure potential property buyers have easy access to information about contamination

• reduce unintended administrative burden

Feedback is important to us. We ask that you distribute the attached discussion paper to your members and encourage them to submit any written comments to the department by July 20, 2018.

Comments can be submitted to: with “contaminated sites” in the subject line
