Is my land contaminated?
DetailsAs banks, building societies and insurance companies become more and more aware of the responsibilities of a land-owner, they are frequently asking for a report which gives details of any known contamination on land. The only real way to confirm the presence of any contamination on the land is to carry out a very expensive soil survey, but the first step is usually to draw on any information which is already known.
We have information which has been drawn from a number of sources and records up to two hundred years old. We can search these records and produce a report which may include:
- previous uses of the site (where known)
- evidence of contamination on the site
- sources of possible contamination within a certain radius of the site
- Authorised processes under Schedule B of the Environmental protection Act 1990
There is a charge for producing this report which depends on the complexity of the site history, we will confirm the price and request payment before carrying out any work.
