The SAFEGROUNDS project, managed by CIRIA is a forum for developing and making available good practice guidance on the management of radioactively and chemically contaminated land on nuclear and defence sites in the UK. It is open to all stakeholders and encourages discussion and feedback on all the key issues.

A short summary of the SAFEGROUNDS guidance document "Good practice guidance for the management of contaminated land on nuclear and defence sites", has just been issued. This is intended to promote awareness and the use of the guidance. The summary has been prepared by James Penfold at Quintessa and Marion Hill, both of whom also collaborated on the development of the detailed guidance document.
