CIRIA Contaminated Land Guidance Tool

Over the last two decades CIRIA, as well as publishing over 50 guides on contaminated land, CIRIA has gathered information on  more than 200 industry guidance documents that help practitioners and other stakeholders to assess and manage risk related to contaminated land and brownfield sites in the UK.  
Following suggestions from members, information on these references has been compiled in a searchable form.
