The current housing challenge coupled with changes in the use of land by the Ministry of Defence is releasing considerable tracts of surplus defence land for redevelopment. Many of the general principles of land contamination investigation, assessment and remediation apply - but there are important differences waiting to catch the unwary.
Whether former air bases, vehicle maintenance, ordnance depots, weapons manufacture or fuel storage, military sites are an important part of securing safe and suitable for use land for new homes. Their rural or peri-urban location makes them very attractive to future residents - and therefore developers.
Many of the contamination issues will be routine - hydrocarbons, solvents, heavy metals or asbestos. However, some will be rare if not unique: e.g. propellants, explosives. Emerging contaminants such as PFOS and PFOA are likely on many types of former military land.
Paul has over two decades of experience in investigating, assessing and researching a wide range of former military sites across the UK and elsewhere.
