Brief:

Complete a phase 1 environmental desk top study to assess the risks to sensitive receptors both on and off-site due to soil and groundwater contamination as a result of the proposed development.

Project:

The proposed redevelopment of the site was for a residential and commercial development of five storeys. The ground floor was to be occupied by two commercial units and the upper levels comprised residential units. Planters were to occupy the upper levels of the site but no soft landscaped areas were proposed at the ground floor level of the site.
