Residential Redevelopment, Cornwall

A mining report obtained as part of the Phase 1 Assessment identifed the site to be at risk from a mineral lode. Trial trenches later identified that no mining-related features were present in the area of development.

Initial contamination laboratory testing recorded elevated levels of arsenic and nickel. Further, more detailed analysis, PBET (Physiologically Based Extraction Test)  confirmed that the levels recorded did not pose a significant risk of causing signifcant harm to human health and that no contamination remediation measures were required.

The site is to be redeveloped for residential purposes with the demolition of the existing property and construction of new flats.
