cond 36 notes

The following has been included as part of the submission:
• Soil Chemical Testing and Gas Monitoring Phase 1.
Given the position reached in terms of the site (i.e. being on-hold), continued gas monitoring and
contamination assessments have continued. The interim findings of the assessment are provided, but in short there is no significant contamination found at the site. The site is made of ‘made ground’ in a lot of areas and this material is inert.
The next steps are to discuss a material management plan with the LPA’s Contamination Officer –
we’d wish to do this as part of this discharge of condition application.

The following has been included as part of the submission: • Soil Chemical Testing and Gas Monitoring Phase 1. As forementioned above, the interim findings of the assessment of contamination at the site outline that there is no significant contamination found at the site. Therefore, and as mentioned above, a material management plan will be discussed with the LPA’s Contamination Officer – which we’d wish to do this as part of the discharge of this application.
