Evaluates the practical enforcement of the contaminated land regime under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 Pt 2A. Examines the extent of the contaminated land problem, the main features of the Pt 2A regime, the discrepancy between the number of potential sites and those actually designated as contaminated, and research on the regime's operation. Discusses the challenges arising from a diffusion of resources, the difficulties produced by the regime's operational complexity, the extent to which Pt 2A has achieved its aims and whether further regulation is needed.
