A farmer was looking to satisfy various pre-commencement planning conditions listed on his planning approval for an agricultural dwelling in Dunsford near Exeter.
SWEL were not sure why a desktop study was requested as the site was green field . . . although it was adjacent to some existing farm buildings. Discussions with Dartmoor National Park Authority had not resulted in the condition being removed and as such the desktop study was carried out, with the obvious recommendation that conditions relating to contaminated land were discharged.
