LEGAL NEWS ON SOIL REMEDIATION AND REHABILITATION OF FORMER INDUSTRIAL SITES
France has more than 320,000 former industrial or service sites and numerous wastelands. In the context of the fight against the artificialization of soils, the revitalization of these wastelands has become a health, ecological and economic necessity.
Legal mechanisms exist to facilitate the revitalization of these wastelands, such as the third-party-substitute mechanism introduced by the ALUR Law of 24 March 2014 and its decree of application of 18 August 2015; the change-of-use mechanism enshrined in Article L. 556-1of the Environmental Code); and private law mechanisms (servitudes, restrictions on use, insurance).
However, unlike water and air, the soil is not currently the subject of any dedicated law. It is still largely regulated by jurisprudence and by national guidelines without binding scope.
This blog aims to make lawyers and non-lawyers aware of the (very rapid) legal developments in this new sector of activity.
