Phase 1 desk study for conversion of barn to residential property
SWG undertook a Phase 1 contamination desk study and walkover survey to assist with planning conditions to identify any potential contamination on a small a small barn site that is to be converted in to a residential dwelling.
A series of historic maps were reviewed along with information on industrial land use, landfills, radon and subsidence.
A conceptual model was developed which did not identify any significant sources of contamination. On this basis SWG recommended the ground suitable for use for a residential property without the need for a Phase 2 contamination investigation. The desk study was accepted by the Local Authority and relevant warranty providers, subsequently planning was granted, saving the Client time and money.
