That before the development hereby submitted starts, a report describing the soil and ground conditions prevailing over the application site (including details of the nature, concentration and distribution of any contaminants and an investigation of any gas seepage from nearby filled ground), shall be submitted to the Planning Authority. The report should be undertaken in accordance with British Standard Code of Practice BS 10175:2001 “The Investigation of Potentially Contaminated Sites” and also ClRlA Report 149 “Protecting Development from Methane.” Any necessary remedial works, having regard to the proposed use of the site, must be agreed in writing with the Planning Authority, and development shall not be commenced until these works have been completed.
To ensure the site is free of contamination in the interests of the amenity of prospective residents.
That prior to any works commencing on site, the applicant must confirm in writing to the Planning Authority that the drainage arrangements to be provided are to the satisfaction of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). The preferred method for the disposal of septic tank effluent is the provision of a sub soil soakaway system. The septic tank and soakaway must be designed in accordance with the current code of practice BS6297:1983 and The Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004 - with the associated technical guidance. Surface water should be excluded from the septic tank. Any soakaway must be located at least 50 metres from any private water supply or other groundwater resource and at least 10 metres from any watercourse or permeable drain. (Note : If poor soil porosity or risk to groundwater resources preclude the use of a soakaway, alternative arrangements will have to be agreed with SEPA. Further advice on the disposal of sewage where no mains drainage is available, is contained within Pollution Prevention Guidance Note 4 which is available on the SEPA website www.sepa.org.uk/guidance or from any SEPA office).
To prevent groundwater or surface water contamination in the interests of environmental and amenity protection.
