Surrey Heath Draft Local Plan Issues Options/Preferred Options, 2018

Contaminated Land

6.21 The Council's Contaminated Land Strategy recognises that contaminated land issues in Surrey Heath are likely to be limited because of the relative lack of industrialisation. However the presence of the MOD and activities such as waste disposal, gas works and some limited commercial and industrial activities could contribute to the potential for land contamination. Where development of such sites take place, the planning process should help manage any risk to existing and future site uses and site workers.
