As a landowner we take seriously our responsibility to manage our land safely.
It is not unusual to find some contamination on previously developed sites such as this. Any potential issues identified in consultants’ reports would need to be addressed as part of a remediation strategy when the site is developed, particularly through the planning application process.
We would liaise with key partners such as the Environment Agency to ensure that any risks to the public and wildlife are minimised.
The cost of any remediation work needed if the site was to be developed would depend on the type of development, the depth of the foundations proposed and where on the site structures are located.
