In order to support the application for the erection of thirteen dwellings a Phase I Desk Study Report was required. Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare the desk study report.
The review of the historical O.S. maps revealed the presence of a pond on the site between 1846 to 1960 and well as an orchard circa 1955, a number of in-filled ponds within 250m of the site were also identified from the O.S.maps.
The report concluded that as part of the development the materials used to in-fill the pond should be investigated as well as the incorporation of gas protection measures.
