9B.1.1 Objective – Managing Risks of Potentially Contaminated Land
Significant risks to human health and the environment posed by potentially contaminated land are identified and addressed as part of the subdivision or development process.
9B.1.1.1 Policy – Investigation of Potentially Contaminated Land
By requiring subdivision and/or development sites that have a history of land use that could have resulted in contamination of the soil to undertake soil testing to confirm whether that land is fit for increased exposure to humans and the environment.
9B.1.2 Objective - Managing Risks for Contaminated Land
Significant risks to human health and the environment posed by remediation, subdivision, use and development of contaminated land are prevented or mitigated.
9B.1.2.1 Policy – Prevention or Mitigation of Adverse Effects for Contaminated Land
By ensuring that all remediation, subdivision, use and development of land affected by soil contamination prevents or mitigates adverse effects and significant risk on human health and the environment.
9B.1.2.2 Policy – Management Measures for Contaminated Land
By requiring management measures for contaminated land that provide for remediation, or containment, or disposal of contaminated soil, so the level of contamination is appropriate for any likely future use of the land.
9B.1.2.3 Policy – Risk Management for Use of Contaminated Land
By ensuring that exposure from the on-going use of land affected by soil contaminants is managed in a way that prevents or mitigates any adverse effects on human health and the environment.
