Conversion of barn to a dwelling

Conversion of Garages to a Dwelling

Case Study Reference: 09-12-03

Planning Authority: Oldham Council

Planning Reference:


As the site was adjacent to a landfill Oldham Council attached the contaminated land planning condition to the decision notice.

The site comprised of a former farm building used for storage. The client provided detailed information of the adjacent landfill, which combined with hand held boreholes sunk as part of the walkover survey demonstrated the landfill was not a credible source of ground gases, and no further works were proposed.

The desk study report was accepted by Oldham Council and the condition discharged.
