Land Forum

The proposed National Quality Mark Scheme for Land affected by Contamination (QMLC) is a scheme that has been developed by the Land Forum to provide visible identification of documents that have been checked for quality by a Suitably Qualified and experienced Person (SQP).  It is hoped that this will provide increased confidence and improved quality of submissions made under regulatory regimes, particularly planning applications, related to previously used land.

The Land Forum intends to facilitate the development of a nationally recognised system for ensuring a satisfactory standard of work that, through endorsement by the Forum and through joint ownership by Land Forum members, can be considered to have support and acceptance across the community.

Details on the Proposed Scheme

As a result of the consultation, it has come to the attention of the Land Forum that there is a lot of misunderstanding about the proposed NQMS particularly amongst local authority contaminated land officers and environmental health officers. Therefore local authority representatives who sit on the Land Forum have produced a short briefing note explaining the main aims of the proposed scheme, its key features and has addressed some of the common concerns raised by local authority officers.
