Answer for Contaminated Land

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My involvement is through the LDA which is involved with contaminated land in two ways. The first is through programmes of assistance to third parties and the second is land that the LDA itself owns or controls. In both cases, we ensure that sites are cleaned and cleared in accordance with the current regulations so as to enable third parties to develop satisfactorily on the sites. There are however a number of sites in London in third party ownerships, which are contaminated. These sites are the responsibility of the site owners and the LDA is not involved. .
