Allerston, North Yorkshire

Brief:

Complete a Phase 1 Environmental Report 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 development is for a detached dwelling with a conservatory, a private garden and a detached garage, together with the associated gravel access drive and hard standing areas. The remainder of the site has areas of lawn and soft landscaping. Access to the property is gained via a dedicated entrance from Main Street. The Allerston Beck ran along the west boundary, this was an obvious sensitive potential receptor for any contamination on site. Gas monitoring, or installation of gas protection, was recommended due to the nearby brick field and clay pit.
