In 1999 the Urban Task Force led by Lord Rogers published the report “Working Towards Renaissance”, championing a holistic approach to urban regeneration, part of which recommended the introduction of a standardised document describing the condition of brownfield sites as part of any transaction process. Following consultation across a broad range of organisations, property developers and government, the Land Condition Report (LRC) was launched, supported by a quality assurance sign off system by an accredited professional. To meet this need the Specialist in Land Condition (SiLC) registration scheme was introduced; a register for experienced practitioners from a diverse range of professional bodies working in the brownfield regeneration sector and advising on land condition matters.
Whilst the scheme was initially designed as a qualification for the sign off of the LRC, it has developed progressively, establishing an important role in improving quality and standards across the industry.
