Contamination Remediation Strategies and Method Statements

If the contamination risk assessments show that remedial measures are required to protect human health and/ or controlled waters, a contamination remediation strategy/ contamination remediation method statement is produced.

Often required to satisfy a planning condition, this is a standalone document that clearly details all of the contamination remediation recommendations, together with the validation testing requirements, any long-term monitoring and actions to be taken if unexpected contamination is identified.

Remedial measures will commonly include source removal and/ or a barrier system (e.g. capping of gardens/ covering of hardstanding), but might include in-situ treatment or the use of an off-site soil remediation hub.

Coal Mining Assessment, Somerset

A Phase 1 Geotechnical Assessment and Coal Mining Risk Assessment indicated that a proposed residential development site in Nailsea was potentially at risk from mining-related subsidence as a result of shallow mine workings within the coal seam beneath the site.
