Jaime Bainbridge, Argyll Environmental

Argyll Environmental, the Brighton-based environmental risk management consultancy and part of Landmark Information Group, believes that a controversial decision by the Court of Appeal that ruled a Local Authority cannot be held liable for pollution it caused on a piece of land due to the Authority having restructured, creates the potential for greater uncertainty for current and future land owners.

The Local Authority in question has restructured and is now a distinct entity from the original polluter (Powys County Council v Price & Anor).
