Barn Conversion at Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire
Case Study Reference: 13-08-03
Planning Authority: Wyre Council
Due to the sensitive nature of the proposed development a contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice for the development. The site comprised of a barn and single story outbuilding, made ground was identified on the site.
The review of the historical O.S. maps identified a number of in-filled ponds within 250m of the site.
The qualitative risk assessment concluded that the in-filled ponds did not pose a risk to the proposed development and the risk form made ground on the site was sufficiently low for the removal of made ground from garden/landscaped areas to be a credible alternative to site investigation.
The report was formally submitted in December 2013 and the report was formally accepted and the condition discharged. The memo accepting the desk study report can be accessed here
