Risk Management of Contaminated Land: HK vs UK

(19th December 2023) 

The full-day CPD course will be delivered on the web using Zoom.

In many metropolitan areas such as Hong Kong and greater London, historical industrial activities,  accidental spills, illegal disposal of construction and demolition waste, criminal activities such as fly-tipping and burial of hazardous materials, presence of naturally occurring hazardous substances, etc. have caused land contamination.

Land contamination can cause harm to the health of both site operatives and residents of local communities, and damage to the ecology and the environment. Similar to many other countries, land scarcity of Hong Kong has compelled the redevelopment of many former industrial sites for other purposes (e.g. commercial and residential). In reality, many of these sites are contaminated sites. These include many brownfield sites which the Hong Kong SAR Government plans to redevelop.

Before a contaminated site can be redeveloped in HK, it needs to be remediated.  The redevelopment of the north apron area of the former Kai Tak Airport is a good example. 

A wealth of experience and knowledge on risk management of contaminated land has been developed in the UK and other countries in the past decade. It is important and beneficial that construction professionals in Hong Kong can access good practice in the assessment and management of contaminated land.
