Planning Policy Statement 23: Planning Pollution and Control Annex 2: Development on Land Effected by Contamination 

(The NPPF withdrew this guidance, but it still pretty much remains the template for how local authories want contaminted land assessments to follow – individual or groups of LAs may well issue their own guidance, but we can expect them to look pretty similar to PPS23)
