Noel joins us today to share his experience in implementing contaminated land policies at the local level through the Council Regional Capacity Building (CRCB) Program, managed by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
You’ll hear Noel share insights from his involvement in transferring the regulatory responsibilities of Underground Petroleum Storage Systems (UPSS) from the state to local level.
He recounts the lessons learned in moving from a face-to-face to online delivery model and shares real-world examples of why having policies in place to manage contaminated land is so important.
