Reclamation and development of former landfills

The presentation will explore the challenges involved in the reclamation and development of former landfills, drawing on recent RSK projects as case studies, including the award-winning and innovative Sandford Farm project. It would cover practical considerations, how the regulatory regime is evolving to deal with such sites and what can be done to ensure such developments are successful and safe in the future.

Peter Witherington will be speaking in the following theatres:
