Planning Authority: Fenland District Council
Demeter Environmental Ltd were commissioned to prepare a Desk Study report to discharge the contaminated land planning condition (Condition 4).
The site comprised of a two story dwelling and associated garden areas.
A number of potentially contaminative land uses were identified during the historical review, by undertaking a full qualitative risk assessment it was demonstrated that there were no credible sources of contamination (on site sources were discounted due to the excavation of hand held trial pits during the site walkover).
