Case Study Reference: 09-11-02
Planning Authority: Cheshire East Council
In order to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice for original decision notice (09/2966C).
The site comprised of an open parcel of sloping land, the historical Ordnance Survey maps indicated a building was present on the site form the first edition map to circa 1976. A number of parcels of in-filled land were identified to be present within 250m of the site.
Made ground was identified in the hand held trial pits excavated as part of the walkover survey.
The report concluded that the off site sourced of ground gases were not credible sources, and no further works were proposed.
Given that the site levels would be lowered as part of the development, it was proposed that any made ground should be removed from the site.
A new planning application was submitted in 2010 (10/0558C), and the desk study report was submitted as part of the new application (the desk study report can be accessed here).
The proposals it the desk study report were approved and the condition discharged.
