Refurbishment of Existing Cottage, The Down, Bridgnorth, Shropshire
Case Study Reference: 13-02-02
Planning Authority: Shropshire Council
In order to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice, Demeter Environmental Ltd were commissioned to prepare a desk study report for the site.
The site comprised of a cottage in a state of disrepair and associated garden areas and cement sheeting was identified on the site.
The historical review identified two in-filled ponds within 250m of the site, which were discounted as credible sources of ground gases in the qualitative risk assessment.
The report recommended that the cement sheeting is removed form the site and that asbestos analysis should be undertaken if there was any evidence of damage ot the sheeting.
The report was formally submitted in June 2014 alongside an asbestos report, which was sufficient to discharge the contaminated land planning condition.
