Key features

Why is this important

A comprehensive site-specific investigation into contamination risks within 500m of the site boundary.

Contaminated land could not only endanger health, but could also limit the use of land, cause corrosion which may lead to subsidence and reduce the land value.

A professional opinion from Argyll Environmental, a specialist in environmental risk assessments.


Provides additional confidence and removes any uncertainty from the interpretation of the report results.

A free re-review service is also offered when additional information is supplied.

Flood risk screening.

Identifies if there is a risk of flooding at or close to the property. 

Energy and infrastructure screening. 

Identifies if there are any projects such as fracking, HS2 and wind farms at, or close to the property which may affect the use of the site. 

Location map and aerial photograph.

These highlight the site and provide an overall view of the area.

Summary of the site including sources of contamination, pathways (eg water, air and soil) and receptors (eg people, plants and property) relating to the site.

A useful summary enabling clear visualisations of the potential risks of contaminated land.

Maps and descriptions of potentially contaminative historical and current land uses.

Some types of industrial land use are known for contaminating land. Knowing what the land has been used for previously can help ascertain the likelihood of contamination.

A map and details are provided of pathways for the contamination of land in the area (eg water, air, soil) and the receptors which may be at risk (eg people, plants, properties).

Helps to evaluate the risks of contamination in the area.
