Contaminated land

Environmental information requests and charges

We are able to provide to you with information on previous land uses and to assess the likelihood of potential contamination on an area, based on the data we hold. There is a charge for this information, under the Environmental Information Regulations (2004), which is not subject to VAT.

Your request should include the full address, you contact details and a location map clearly showing the boundary of your site. Once we have received this you will be informed of the fee which are as follows

  • for one property: £238
  • more than one property at a time: £450
  • an hourly charge of £107 for single questions or for sites that do not involve the retrieval of archived information

We will not start work on your enquiry until we have received full payment.

Please contact the contaminated land officer for further details.


We can take payment

  • over the phone
  • by cheque made payable to 'Runnymede Borough Council'.

Or by completing our online form.
