We are currently undertaking a comprehensive updated review of the site and it’s technical constraints and considerations.The following technical studies are being undertaken by the relevant specialists:
Earthworks and Site Levels – matters such as topography, contamination, soil conditions and sustainable urban drainage will be examined via relevant reports in the final submission
Noise - A Noise Impact Assessment report will outline the results of examination of a noise model for the site.The report will provide an assessment of impact and proposals for mitigation for any noise issues to ensure future and existing residents and services enjoy good amenity.
Flooding – A Flood Risk Assessment will be undertaken to ensure the site is not at risk of flooding.The report will inform the development of the site layout and predict the extent of the 200 year floodplain of the Burn of Leggart.The assessment will also consider flood levels for the 200 year flood event with additional climate change allowance.The physical development levels will be set so that the site is future-proofed for future increases in flow due to climate change
Trees - to ascertain the impact of the development on the existing trees at the site. Archaeology - to ensure that the development will not significantly impact adversely upon any cultural heritage receptors.
Ecology - to assess the biodiversity and habitat value of the Site and identify where any mitigation is needed.To also look at appropriate conservation and enhancement of biodiversity.
Transport - to ensure that safe access for vehicle, pedestrians and public transport users is considered as part of development proposals, and that the wider road network can safely accommodate any resulting increase in traffic flows.This will be done via an updatedTransport Assessment.
Drainage - to ensure that the development proposals consider Sustainable Urban Drainage systems (SUDs) in accordance with SEPA’s current requirements.
Air Quality - to ascertain initially if the existing air quality conditions at the development site fall within legal limits to allow residential development, and also to quantify the impact from the proposed development within both the construction phase and the operational phase of the development.
