Prior Notification of Change of use Agricultural Building to a Dwelling, Warboys

Case Study Reference: 15-05-08

Planning Authority: Huntingdonshire District Council

Planning Reference: 15/00342/PMBPA


A desk study report was required to support the prior notification of the change of use of an agricultural building to residential in order to determine if the site soils may be impacted by elevated levels of contamination.

The review of the historical O.S. maps did not reveal any potential sources of contamination on site and an excavation 200m west was the only off site source of contamination identified (discounted as the excavation was not in-filled)

However made ground was identified on the site during the walkover survey, which the desk study report recommended should be removed from garden and landscaped areas of the proposed development.

The desk study can be accessed here (via the Huntingdonshire District Council planning portal)
