Why is this important?
|Whether a site is likely to be impacted by the proposed new High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail.||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.|
|Major energy, environmental and transport infrastructure projects.||These developments can disrupt business activities and effect the enjoyment of a property.|
|Areas of land that are licensed for onshore energy exploration and production.||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.|
|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||Property owners may be concerned with the proximity of renewable energy plants to their property.|
