CONTAMINATED LAND

Request


We are a small environmental consultancy. We would like to be able to order contaminated land and other environmental searches from your Authority. We have tried to find information on how your Authority deals with environmental enquiries on your website but have been unable to. Therefore I would be grateful if you would provide answers to the following questions as soon as possible.

Q1) How much does your Authority charge for a Part 2A Status Report? A Part 2A Status Report would be a letter similar to the attached that a client can use after having obtained a 'failed' or 'further information required' assessment from one of the commercial environmental search report providers.

Q2) Is your Authority able to provide a Contaminated Land screen report similar to the attached report (i.e. a map and list of the property and any potential contaminated land sites within 250m)? If so how much do you charge for this. Could you please send us a sample report?

Q3) Is there a limit to the property size for the prices stated above?

Q4) Do you charge differently for residential and commercial searches? If so how much do you charge for a commercial property

Q5) What is the turnaround time for environmental information requests (i.e. providing each of the reports referred to in Q1 and Q2)?
