The Site
The plot sits within established Cornish hedgebank and within an approximately 4 acre plot with three ponds. A topographical survey, ecological survey, landscape and visual assessment and foul drainage form have been completed. A phase 1 land contamination report has been completed. The conclusion detailed in the officer’s report is that any risks are capable of being mitigated such that the site is suitable for the proposed use. There is a moderate risk from the former poultry building and the made ground presents a low to medium risk. A recommendation is made for further investigation into these identified areas.
