Selected Land Use Register (SLUR)
Greater Wellington holds a register of sites where activities involving hazardous substances have or may have taken place. This register, which is formally known as the Selected Land Use Register (SLUR), is held on behalf of the eight Territorial Authorities in the Wellington region. The SLUR records sites that fit the definitions in the Ministry for the Environment’s Hazardous Activities and Industries List (HAIL).
Sites that are registered in SLUR are known (or suspected) to have been involved (historically or currently) in the use, storage or disposed of hazardous substances and as a consequence may contain residues of these substances. In some cases these sites will be “contaminated sites” and in others not; to distinguish between sites, SLUR classifies them under six categories.
SLUR records any information that is available relating to the site, such as:
