According to the National Planning Concept (2019), development strategies and choices shall assure that each new building is suitable for its surroundings, keeping in mind the potential negative impacts of contamination on the environment or human health. By National planning policy framework stipulates that to minimize unnecessary risk, both sensitivities of the planned building and its surroundings must be thought about in the phase 1 desktop study report. The builder and/or landowners are responsible for making sure that construction is secure. One least expensive option to guarantee that such requirements are met is to conduct an analytical study.

According to the NPPF, the appropriateness of the property for the intended use is established by evaluating the effects of any prior or nearby land use activities on the development projects. Thus, familiarity with both the construction phase and traditional industrial practices, including pollution prevention regulation, is crucial for making a sound, realistic assessment of the dangers that could be involved. We help parties prevent any transference of potential ecological liability by performing phase 1 pollution reports in connection with real estate or commercial activities.

Contextual surroundings Environmental Affairs approvals, legal classifications, adjacent land use, ecosystem, unsafe locations. Freshwater sources’ anticipated geological, hydrology, and reactivity. Risk of flooding and hydrogeological, proximity and sensitivities regulated waterways, the background of the location in detail, mentioning any probable contamination-causing actions, Potentially contaminated resources on the property and in the neighbourhood. Articulated findings in connection to any present or proposed uses.
