Contaminated Land

With increasing concern over environmental problems caused by contaminated land – sometimes called ‘brownfield’ sites – you may want specific information on a particular area, or general reassurance about the risk of local mining subsidence, etc.

There is a national database being established where this type of information should be more readily available. For details of the SiteCheck and EnviroCheck service contact the Landmark Information Group on 01392 441700, or visit its web-site www.landmarkinformation.co.uk.

The Government is shortly to change the way property is sold with a mandatory Home Information Pack (q.v.) being available for applicants to inspect. Although the final Regulations are still be drafted, it is almost certain that an Environmental Report will be one of the necessary documents. In most areas it will mention matters like flood risk and pollution levels but will be more important for brownfield developments and areas with a history of mining activity.
