Streetview images indicated the site was cleared between August 2015 and July 2016.

The O.S maps revealed two in-filled ponds and a smithy in close proximity to the site.

 

 

Environmental data in the Groundsure reports and data provided by the Environment Agency did no reveal any further potential sources of contamination, and the data indicted the controlled waters in the vicinity of the site were of low sensitivity.

The site walkover survey was undertaken on completion of the review of the O.S maps and environmental data, at the time of the walkover survey the site had been cleared and the building had commenced. As the site had been cleared it could be demonstrated that made ground associated with the previous site uses had been removed from the site.

The remainder of the potential sources of contamination (former buildings, smithy, orchard and in-filled ponds) were assessed in the qualitative risk assessment and it was concluded that none were credible sources of contamination.

As there where no credible sources of contamination, a conceptual model for the site could no be constructed, demonstrating that no further works were required.

The decision notice accepting the desk study report is here.
