Barn Conversion, Styal, Cheshire
Case Study Reference: 12-11-02
Planning Authority: Cheshire East Council
Planning Reference: 11/2107M
Demeter Environmental Ltd were commissioned to prepare a Desk Study report to discharge the contaminated land planning condition for the conversion of a barn into a dwelling.
The Desk Study report identified a number of potential issues on and within 250m of the site. The walkover survey demonstrated the absence of made ground on the site and there was no evidence of the storage of chemicals within the barn.
The qualitative risk assessment also indicated that the off site sources of ground gases were not credible, and the Desk Study Report did not propose any further works.
The memo accepting the recommendations of the Desk Study Report can be accessed here.
