Planning application consultations

When land is considered for redevelopment, the planning department consult Environmental Health for advice relating to contamination. When insufficient information is provided with the application, we may recommend conditions relating to land contamination. It is the developer's responsibility to procure and submit these documents through the planning department.

Guidance as to what is acceptable is given in the Icon for pdf Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Pollution Advisory Group (YALPAG) Development on Land Affected by Contamination guidance [1.21MB].

    It is strongly recommended that you employ a competent consultant to undertake this work on your behalf. It is vital that you allow sufficient time within the building program to allow these conditions to be discharged, as they are 'pre-commencement' conditions. Three to six months is not unusual. If you have any questions, please contact your planner in the first instance.

    For small developments (less than 10 houses) and some barn conversions, we ask that a Icon for pdf YALPAG screening assessment form [410.56KB] be submitted prior to determination. You are advised to provide as much information as possible, and plenty of photos.
