Case Study Reference: 11-05-05

Planning Authority: Cheshire East Council

Planning Reference: 13/2136C and Desk Study Report


In order to support the planning application for the residential development of a former farm, Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare a desk study report for the site.

The report identified the potential for contamination from the former buildings (made ground) and ground gas. The report proposed either analysis or remediation assuming a reasonable worst case scenario.

The report was accepted as part of the application, and the council agreed with the recommendation of an intrusive site investigation.
