The site formed part of a former gas works which closed in the late 1950’s, the land was subsequently cleared and parcels sold for residential development.

Little if any remediation work was undertaken as the works were redeveloped, as such parts remained heavily contaminated. The remaining site represented a significant risk given its location adjacent to two local water courses.

Foston Estates was instructed to secure planning permission and dispose of the site following remediation.

Working in collaboration with an adjoining land owner, planning permission was granted by Wiltshire Council for a large four bed detached house on the combined holding.

A comprehensive remediation strategy was agreed with the Council, including adjoining holdings for which Defra funding was secured following a declaration under Part 2A of the Environmental Act 1990.

Combining two land holdings maximised the value of the Clients interests and effectively created a special interest purchaser.

Agreeing a comprehensive remediation strategy and works programme minimised disruption, reduced costs and addressed cross boundary contamination issues.
