So, if you’re looking to make a planning application for a new dwelling, convert an outbuilding or carry out more significant works such as site redevelopment, demolition of existing buildings etc then you will doubtless need to supply some of the reports listed here!

Importantly we’ll ensure our reports are effective in their support for your application wherever possible.

This report is to determine whether contamination exists and our initial report will look at whether 3 tests are met before there is a risk of contamination prior to development.



We produce reports to show harm to biodiversity can be mitigated as the planning process requires any proposed development considers it’s impact on Ecology and wildlife.



We can help you identify whether your land is susceptible to flooding and therefore needs an FRA and highlight issues and proposals to overcome flood risk



All planning applications where trees are on site or fall close to development on neighbouring land are required to submit a Tree Survey to as part of any planning submission.

Whats Happens Once You Have Secured Planning Permission?

Once you’ve secured your planning permission, you’ll potentially have conditions to discharge. We can assist in providing follow on assessments and actual works, such as Archaeology and Historic Building Recording, to discharge those conditions. During construction Building Regulations require certain assessments in order to ensure compliance, for example Sound Insulation & Air Tightness Testing and SAP calculations are needed on certain forms of development.

What is a contaminated land survey or report?

A Contamination Report, also known as a Contaminated Land Report (CLR) or Contaminated Land Survey, provides advice to landowners and developers as to whether there is, or is likely to be, any contamination on a site where development is proposed. Contamination can occur naturally, accumulate over time or be present due to a single event.

Most sites will have some contamination but, in most cases, the levels will not pose a risk. The purpose of the Contamination Report is to identify what contaminants are present and, given the proposed use for the site, whether they pose a risk to human health or the environment.

We want you to start on your project, so promote the best chances of development through our contamination surveys.

It’s an increasing requirement to provide statutory reports and assessments in support of Planning applications.
