We encourage and promote the effective and sustainable reuse of contaminated land in Scotland and elsewhere, positively contributing to future economic growth and quality of life for people and communities.
Our members are drawn from the public and private sector including regulators, consultants, contractors and service providers and we welcome new members so come and join in. Our quarterly forum meetings and annual conference aid knowledge sharing in the industry and provide an easy atmosphere for networking.
We were established with the assistance of Scottish Enterprise with our main objectives to bring together contaminated land professionals of all kinds, to arrange meetings for information exchange and to promote and develop best practice among Scottish contaminated land practitioners.
