Contaminated Sites

Recent legislation has placed obligations on landowners to proactively identify and clean up contaminated sites. This means that when you come to buy or sell a property or apply for resource consent to subdivide, you may be required to complete investigations about whether the land is contaminated. If contamination is found, you may be required to clean it up.

Law North Limited has been at the forefront of this developing area of the law because of the historical use of land in the Far North for agriculture and horticulture.

Our property teams led by Richard Ayton, Dennis McBrearty and Simon Dominick can help you with your inquiries about contaminated sites.
