In the news – Contamination identified at the Northstowe Housing Development Site (Former Oakington Military Barracks)

A report in the Cambridge News provides a link to the site investigation report that has been carried out at a 10,000 housing development in Cambridge. There is comment from the local authority on the findings and the message is clear – land contamination is commonly found and can be dealt with. The consultants’ investigation uncovered areas of arsenic, asbestos and military ordnance at the Northstowe housing development.

The article goes on to explain that the land contamination was anticipated in an earlier Phase 1 Desk Study highlighting the benefits of a phased approach to developing brownfield land.
