The Phase I Land Contamination Assessment is a desk top appraisal using a range of historic and modern maps and plans, combined with a walkover survey of the site. The report establishes any potential sources of contamination and evaluates how these might reach site users and the wider environment. The Phase I will either conclude no further work required or recommend a Phase II assessment which is likely to include soil sampling and chemical analysis.
