A number of potentially contamination land uses were identified in close proximity tot he site including a goods yard, infilled land and tanks.

The buildings had been demolished prior to the walkover survey, and the site was covered by demolition rubble/made ground as well as two stockpiled of demolition rubble.

Based on the site history and the sensitivity of the proposed development, a site investigation was proposed in the desk study report.
