Sustainability in the Delivery of Brownfield Regeneration: Sustainable Management of Soils

26th May 2022 11:00
Duration: 2hr

We’re pleased to announce details on the final webinar in this two part series on brownfield regeneration.

The successful delivery of societal resilience to changing climate depends on increased adaptation and acceptance by both society and industry of the need to rapidly embrace change.  Such is anticipated to drive both innovation and opportunity throughout all sectors. Our sector is no different.

Sustainability in the Delivery of Brownfield Regeneration is a webinar series where we will share some of the more recent policy changes that will increasingly influence how we deliver sustainable brownfield development in the UK.  This will include the provision of policy updates, their associated opportunity and legal perspective on responsibilities and risk. On a more practical basis we will also present awareness of the tools available to assist decision making to sustainable remediation options and waste classification.

Sustainability in the Delivery of Brownfield Regeneration: Sustainable Management of Soils, is the second webinar in this series. In this session, and continuing the theme of sustainability, we will look at soil’s management. Our speakers will firstly provide a policy update about the new Code of Practice for the Sustainable Use of Soils and its implications to development. This will be followed by a legal perspective on the liabilities imposed on developers and consultants under the revised Duty of Care and how to reduce these risks. Finally, we will hear tips and experience so as to better assist practitioners in the classification of soils. This is an area that remains on occasion bound by error yet easily avoided and can lead to poor decision making in the sustainable management of soils and costs.

This webinar is two hours in length and will feature three influential and leading UK speakers, each with an aim to share and increase awareness, direct listeners to available resource and provide an opportunity for open discussion. These presentations will be followed by an opportunity for audience questions to the expert group.

The narrative and detail presented will be of particular interest to developers, consultants and contractors alike.
