Planning Authority: Breckland Council

Planning Reference: 3PN/2016/0022/UC


In order to support the application for a permitted development a Phase I desk study report was required, which Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare.

The review of the historical O.S. maps revealed the site was developed prior tot he first edition maps (1882) and the layout of the buildings changed circa 1995.

The walkover survey revealed demolition rubble to be present on the site.

The conclusion of the qualitative risk assessment was that whilst the made ground identified on the site posed a risk to human health, the risk was sufficiently low for the removal of the made ground to be a preferable option to site investigation.

The desk study report can be accessed here and the memo accepting the report here.
