Extension to a Service Station, Bury Road, Rochdale

Case Study Reference: 11-03-02

Planning Authority: Rochdale Borough Council

Planning Reference: 09/D52480


In order to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice for the extension of the existing service station Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare the desk study report.

Whilst the service station has the potential to be a source of contamination, due to the low sensitivity of the development, the desk study report concluded that no further works were required.

In order to provide sufficient information for the planning authority to discharge the condition further intrusive works were undertaken within the footprint of the extension to demonstrate that there were no risks.
