Replacement Dwelling, Bolton Road, Church, Bury, BL8
Case Study Reference: 12-02-06
Planning Authority: Bury Council
Planning Reference: 55103
Due to the sensitive nature of the proposed development, a desk study report was required in order to discharge the contaminated land planning condition attached to the decision notice.
The site comprised of the former partly demolished dwelling (demolished prior to the walkover survey) and garden areas.
Whilst the review of the historical maps did not reveal any history to the site, a number of potential off site sources were identified, all of which were discounted as credible sources in the qualitative risk assessment, and no further works were proposed.
The desk study report was accepted by the planning authority (here) with the provision of a watching brief to be undertaken during the development. The desk study report is accessible via the Bury Planning Portal (Documents section for 55103).
