Planning Authority: Newcastle Borough Council

Planning Reference: 13/00228/FUL and 13/00228/CN10


Given the sensitive nature of the proposed development and proximity of former residential garages a contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice for the propose development.

Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare the desk study report (can be accessed via 13/00228/CN10) for the site, and whilst the report concluded that there were no credible sources an intrusive investigation was required to demonstrate there were no potential issues on the site.

The Phase II identified the made ground as a potential source of contamination and it was proposed that all made ground from garden / landscaped areas would be removed.

In order for the development to commence the method statement (Phase IIIa Implementation plan) was required (can be accessed via 13/00228/CN10).
