As a minimum a Phase I Desk Study (a home buyer's report is not acceptable) and site walkover is required to assess the potential risks to the future intended use of the site from land contamination. The Desk Study should be completed and submitted alongside the planning application. More information is available in our planning leaflet
If the Desk Study identifies potential sources of contamination and, depending on the degree of contamination, a Phase II site investigation may also be needed in support of the planning application, e.g. former petrol filling stations and any developments on or immediately adjacent to filled land such as a former landfill or quarry.
