Demeter Environmental Ltd were commissioned to prepare a Desk Study report to discharge the contaminated land planning condition which was attached to the decision notice.

The development comprised of the demolition of the existing buildings erection of seven dwellings.

As part of the walkover survey a number of trial pits were excavated to obtain information on the ground conditions.

Given the information on the ground conditions provided by the trial pits, the option of assuming a reasonable worst case scenario was proposed in lieu of a site investigation. The remedial proposals were accepted and the requirement for a Phase II report was circumvented.

The development commenced in 2013 and the validation of the remediation was undertaken.

The desk study report can be viewed on the documents tab on planning page (here).
