Erection of Three Dwellings, Warkton Lane, Kettering, NN15
Given the sensitivity of the proposed development (residential) a contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice for the proposed development.
In order to determine if the site has the potential to be impacted by elevated concentrations of contamination a Phase I desk study report was prepared for the site.
The desk study report looks at the history of the site using a combination of Ordnance Survey maps as well as aerial plates and street level imagery as well as information held by regulatory bodies (Environment Agency, local authority etc.).
Data provided by regulatory bodies did not provide any further information.
A qualitative risk assessment was undertaken to assess the potential sources of contamination which determined that the potential for made ground on the site required further assessment.
Given the limited area where de ground could be present remediation in lieu of investigation was proposed.
The memo accepting the report (identified as ‘Approval of Condition Nos. 3, 6, 9, 10 & 11’) is available with the application documents.
