Woods End Farm,Upgate,Swannington,NR9 5AH

Residential redevelopment of Former Piggeries, Upgate, Swannington

Case Study Reference: 13-10-08

Planning Authority: Broadland District Council

Planning Reference: 20130489

Synopsis:

Due to the sensitivity of the development and the historical use of the site a contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice for the proposed development.

Whilst the report and walkover demonstrated there were no credible source of contamination on the site, a number of in-filled ponds were present within 250m of the site, which could not be discounted as credible sources of ground gases.

The report concluded that the risk form the in-filled ponds was sufficiently low that the incorporation of gas protection measures was a more suitable approach than undertaking a gas monitoring exercise.

The desk study report can be accessed from here and confirmation the contaminated land planning condition was discharged here.
