Erection of Log Cabin, Dunscar Bridge, Egerton, Bolton
Case Study Reference: 10-01-02
Planning Authority: Bolton Council
In order to support a planning application for the proposed development a desk study report was required to provide information on any potential source of contamination.
The site comprised of an agricultural building and stables.
Whilst a number of potentially contaminative land uses were identified, information on the design of the log cabin allowed the risk assessment to be refined and all potential sources of contamination were discounted, and no further works were proposed.
The application was approved and a contaminated land planning condition was not attached to the decision notice.
