Sheltered Accommodation Development, Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire
Case Study Reference: 11-09-04
Planning Authority: Wyre Council
Due to the sensitive nature of the proposed development Wyre Council attached the contaminated land planning condition to the decision notice of the proposed development.
The site comprised of a single two story dwelling with established gardens, no evidence of contamination was identified during the walkover survey.
The historical review did not reveal any credible issues on the site, but a number of parcels of in-filled land were identified within 250m of the site, and as an alternative to undertaking a ground gas investigation and subsequent gas monitoring, the incorporation of gas protection measures were proposed.
The desk study report is available on the Wyre planning portal
