  3. Contaminated land

    Copeland, like most of the country, has a long history of industrial activity which has led to a legacy of contaminated land. Where land is contaminated there may be serious consequences for human health and the environment. The law (2000 Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990)  requires us to inspect our area for contaminated land and ensure it is cleared up appropriately.
