No phase of development shall commence until a scheme to deal with any site contamination within that phase has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved scheme shall include an investigation and assessment to identify the extent of contamination and the measures to be taken to avoid risk to human health. Development shall only proceed in accordance with the approved scheme.
REASON : To ensure that risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other offsite receptors.
REASON FOR PRE-COMMENCEMENT: The information is required prior to any works commencing on site as it relates to land contamination details which are often the first works on site and relate to site preparation.
