For many centuries Mining was a widespread industry in the southwest that has left a legacy of hidden shafts and workings that present a risk of subsidence.
Our Mining Searches assess this risk and are prepared by an experienced team using our extensive mining archive.
Heavy metals within soils of Cornwall & Devon can be naturally elevated or concentrated by past mining. The multi-phase assessment of this risk is a standard Condition of Planning Permission for new development and is often required during conveyancing.
“Mundic” is a term that refers to sub-standard concrete where reactive aggregates have been used in construction in the South West (used in the construction of buildings prior to 1950). A Mundic Test is a requirement of the Council of Mortgage Lenders as part of property conveyancing.
A supervised ground investigation is necessary when a mining risk requires further assessment.
This is designed to appraise the nature of the hazard in detail, whilst addressing the specifics of the property and needs of the client.
