Conversion of Storage Area to Dwelling, Oxford Road, Macclesfield
Case Study Reference: 11-01-03
Planning Authority: Cheshire East Council
Planning Reference: 10/4045M
Due to the site being in close proximity to a silk mill and the sensitive nature of the proposed development, the contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice.
At the time of the walkover the site had been cleared and there was no evidence of contamination. The review of the historical maps indicated the site was developed before the first edition O.S. map and no changes had occurred.
The report recommended the incorporation of remedial measures (hydrocarbon membrane) in lieu of intrusive works.
The report was accepted by the planning authority (memo can be accessed here) and the condition discharged.
