In order to be ale to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice for the proposed development, Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare a desk study report for the site.

The review of the O.S maps identified a number of potential sources of contamination in close proximity to the site, and the absence of any potential sources on site was confirmed as part of the walkover survey.

Given the presence of an landfill (accepted inert waste only) and other smaller parcels of in-filled land the risk from ground gases could not be discounted , although the qualitative assessment demonstrated the risk was low enough for gas protection measures in lieu of a site investigation was justified.

The desk study can be accessed here and confirmation the report was sufficient to discharge the contaminated land planning condition here.
