Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
Land in Belfast, Northern Ireland!
Land is approx 150 square metres. About 0.015 Ha.

Contaminated Land Risk Assessment for a planning application. The land is currently being used as a vehicle repair garage, and there is a petrol filling station located in close proximity to the site - therefore indicates potential to cause contaminated land and pose a risk to human health.

I'm guessing I need a quote for each phase of the assessment, as it may not need to go through all three phases? The report should follow the methodology outlined in Model Procedures for the Management of Land Contamination (CLR11) :

- A preliminary risk assessment (often referred to as a Phase I) that includes a full description of the site and its surroundings, a determination of the history of the site and its surroundings, identification of the current and past land uses and a Preliminary Conceptual Site Model outlining all potential Source-Pathway-Receptor pollutant linkages.

- (Should the Preliminary Risk Assessment demonstrate that a potential linkage exits on the site then...) A Quantitative Risk Assessment (often referred to as a Phase II) that addresses these issues. This must incorporate:
(a) a detailed site investigation in line with the British Standards BS10175. Any ground gas investigations should be conducted in line with BS8485.
(b) a satisfactory assessment of the risks (including a Revised Conceptual Site Model) associated with any contamination present, conducted in line with the current Defra and Environment Agency guidance. In addition, risks associated with ground gases should be assessed under the methodology outlined in CIRIA C665

- based on the outcome of this risk assessment, a Remedial Strategy (often referred to as Phase III) may be required. If found necessary, the Strategy must demonstrate how the identified pollutant linkages are to be demonstrably broken and no longer pose a significant risk to human health.
