Land Quality Report

Land Quality Report

Land Quality Report

Agb Environmental provide comprehensive support and guidance when it comes to contaminated land issues. For projects requiring desk studies, site investigations, land quality reports and remediation services, our team of experienced staff can work with you throughout.

Tailored to suit your development, agb Environmental can offer Phase 1 Desk Study Assessments with a land quality report to discover whether there is any contaminates or pollutants. Once completed, the land quality report will show up any findings that may mean a Phase 2 Site Investigation is required, and then the land quality report will go on to recommend that Remediation Strategies may be required. Alongside our land quality reports, we can also provide groundwater and ground gas monitoring.

Encompassing the bigger picture of every project, agb Environmental’s main aim is to maximise project value by ensuring you avoid any costly mistakes or timely delays. By employing a land quality report, your project can move on to confidently deal with any found contamination and successfully complete to the high standards expected from stakeholders.

Having worked with many clients in the past, including carrying out services for petrol stations, gas works and landfills, you can be reassured that our land quality reports are to the highest of standards.

For further information about contaminated land and land quality reports from agb Environmental, contact Alex Brearley on 01638 663226

Trees: A Contentious Issue

Whether removal or retention of trees is preferred, developers must remain aware of the ways in which to work with these ‘material constraints’. Tree considerations are a vital part of the planning process. The Local Planning Authority (LPA) may require that the best trees be retained within any development. The British Standard BS 5837:2012 provides guidance to ensure retained trees are maintained in the best condition, whilst maximising their contribution to development.


Asbestos in Soil: Changes

With new guidance published on the method in which the risk from asbestos in soil should be managed, agb Environmental advises on the correct assessment procedures to avoid over-cautious and costly removal.

Trees vs. Buildings?

When building near trees, you need to consider both how your building may damage roots, and how roots may damage your building. You can’t usually see where they are until you start digging, so how can you plan your development to take roots in to account?
