Relevant to remediation options is the policy that land should be suitable for use; either the existing use under the Contaminated Land Regulations, or the
new use under Development Control (Planning). Therefore the remediation option or options used at a site should achieve site specific criteria to comply with
this policy. It should also seek to prevent or mitigate pollution of controlled waters.
Contaminated soils and waters are a controlled waste and must be treated or disposed of in accordance with national legislation.

In England there is anticipated to be a change to the regulation of remediation options by the extension and modification of the Mobile Plant Licensing system
to be phased in from October 2005.
