Why is this important?
|Indicates if a site is likely to be impacted by the proposed new High Speed 2 (HS2) rail network, including depots and station locations.||The government has recently increased commitment to HS2, giving cause for concern regarding the impact on property prices and noise pollution. This highly cost-effective report clearly identifies any legitimate issues.|
|Shows the nearest point of the proposed HS2 route, within 5km of rural areas and 2km of urban areas. Also establishes whether the route is in a tunnel, in a cutting, at ground level or on a viaduct and includes maximum speed of a train as it passes the property.||These are all factors that affect the likely amount of noise pollution. For instance, if the track nearest to a property is underground or in a cutting, this should not cause noise disruption to residents.|
|Clear mapping to show areas of land that are licensed for onshore energy exploration and production with details of the associated license provided.||Given the potential high impact of energy exploration and production, including hydraulic fracturing (fracking), the report enables you to meet your client care requirement and is a valuable addition to your due diligence obligations. Energy exploration is once more high on the government agenda, meaning that the likelihood of property and land being affected is also on the rise.|
|Identifies whether there are any planning applications for wind and solar farms close to the property and if there are any that have been approved and in construction.||Property owners may be concerned with the presence of a wind farm close to their home or business. Some common concerns relate to their effect on the landscape, potential impacts to property price and noise pollution.|
|Location of renewable energy plants including anaerobic digestion, biomass, heat pumps, landfill gas and sewage sludge digestion.||Property owners may be concerned with the proximity of renewable energy plants to their property.|
