LGP Forum: Environmental risks associated with managing and purchasing property

Mellor Olsson are pleased to invite you to our second quarterly Local Government Property, Planning and Procurement Forum (LGP Forum) for 2019, ‘LGP Forum: Environmental risks associated with managing and purchasing property’.  

This informative and interactive session will focus on the risks associated with managing or purchasing property and will be relevant for a broad cross section of Local Government professionals.

The forum will be an opportunity for attendees to raise both specific or general queries in relation to property and environmental risk. 

Guest speakers Gary Purdy and Andrew Durand from Greencap will cover topics including:

  • An overview of the responsibilities associated with property management.
  • The basics of site contamination assessment and remediation in South Australia.
  • Present case studies that illustrate a number of potential environmental and occupancy liabilities associated with site development and management.

Our team of Local Government specialists will also be on hand to answer questions, talk to you about any legal issues you have, as well as provide updates on recent changes in the law.
