In order to erect eight dwelling on the site a desk study report was required to discharge the contaminated land planning condition. Demeter Environmental were commissioned to undertake the desk study report.
The site comprised of two dwellings and associated garden areas, the walkover survey did not identify any potential sources of contamination.
Whilst the review of the historical maps revealed a number of in-filled ponds in close proximity to the site, all were discounted as credible sources in the qualitative risk assessment, and the report did not propose any further works.
In order to demonstrate if there had been any changes to the site since the 2011 walkover, a second survey was undertaken in May 2012.
