Enquiry service

The Council's Strategic Environment Team operates an 'environmental enquiry & professional opinion' service with regards to contaminated land, which is available to members of the public and those with a commercial/industrial interest for a fee of £100 +VAT.
 

A search will be carried out whereby data is gathered and analysed from a number of sources.  A site visit may also be carried out to gather supplementary information, although this is not always necessary.

The environmental opinion report will include information such as the current and past use of the site, site specific information, pollution incidents on the site, previous planning history, nearby landfill sites, the location of fuel tanks and other relevant information (where available).
