Contaminated Land Advice Note
|Q1||Is contamination known or suspected?|
|If yes submit the following requirement information, otherwise proceed to Q2.|
Sufficient information is required for any sites which have/or have had a use which may have given rise to contamination to enable the Council to decide whether the development can proceed safely. Industrial/commercial land use should also be considered.
In addition, the past/present use of land in the vicinity of the proposed development site also needs to be considered, such as land with fuel storage (within close proximity) and filled land (e.g.landfills andformer quarries within 250 metres of the site) from which potential ground gas migration can occur.
The responsibility for securing a safe development rests with the developer and/or land owner. However local planning authorities should be satisfied that a proposed development will be appropriate for it's location and not pose an unacceptable risk.
|Q2||Is the proposed use particularly vulnerable?|
