A Site Report describes and records the condition of the land and groundwater at a site. It will enable baseline conditions of the land and groundwater to be established and subsequently enable you to demonstrate that you have protected the land and groundwater and it is in a satisfactory state when you come to surrender your permit. You can demonstrate this by:
• Producing the application part of the Site Report when you first apply for a permit.
• Updating the Site Report during the lifetime of your permit.
• Completing the surrender parts and submitting the full completed Site Report when you apply to surrender your permit.
In the Site Report, you will describe what condition the land and groundwater are in at the time of surrender. If the land and groundwater are not in a satisfactory state, the application to surrender the permit will not be accepted.
