Erection of Two Dwellings on a Former farm Yard, Main Street, Welney, Wisbech, Norfolk
Case Study Reference: 14-09-05
Planning Authority: Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk
Planning Reference: 13/01538/F
In order to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare a desk study report for the site.
At the time of the walkover survey the site had been cleared and part of the site was covered by the demolition rubble, and whilst the initial desk study report concluded that the risk was minimal, the absence of any information on the previous building was sufficient in order to require an intrusive investigation.
Subsequent liaison with the contaminated land officer was undertaken to have the scope of works approved.
The Phase II investigation was undertaken in March 2015, which concluded that the made ground on the site posed a potential risk to human health and mediation int he garden areas was required.
