So, you want to develop a site. The rigours of planning are challenging and contaminated land is a major stumbling block when discharging conditions. Failing to discharge planning conditions will slow down solicitor searches or even stop the sale of property. Our technical expertise and practical liaison with the Regulators will see you through the quagmire of legislation and risk assessment. We ensure a smooth progression throughout the planning process, leading up to, during and after the development of your site.
The ‘owner pays’ principle in the UK requires site owners to identify any contamination risk prior to purchase or development of a site, to avoid costly future liabilities. We apply practical ‘science’, and deliver common sense approaches for investigating and assessing your site. Our technical team offers clever, cost effective remediation solutions to ‘clean up’ existing sites and reduce liabilities. We’re also on hand to provide all the expertise you need to achieve savings on future site purchases.
It can be difficult to find a value-driven consultancy, capable of offering pragmatic advice at short notice. The LK Group tailor their services to a wide range of challenges on my sites and just get on with it.
