East End Homes

Brief:

Provide advice on an area within a residential estate that was proposed for use as a community allotment.

Project:

The site was located on the Isle of Dogs, not far from Mudchute Farm, in an area with a long industrial history. Previous investigations had identified some contamination to be present. Our report considered a range of options from further sampling and testing including the possibility of testing for bio-accessibility to providing means of mitigating the risk by the use of raised planters or for fruit trees, pits filled with clean soil.
