‘Prospects for the remediation sector in a turbulent political time’.
With politics more unstable than for many years, and housing remaining the focus of media and social concern, the remediation sector is vulnerable to knee-jerk regulation and policy change. Peter will set out how the sector can make a strong case for its role in delivering brownfield development that meets social and economic needs, and talk about the work of EIC in making this case.
