Our Phase 1: Desktop Study is the first phase in investigating potentially contaminated land as required by planners, warranty companies and building control officers. Also known as a contaminated land risk assessment or preliminary risk assessment, our reports are created to a nationally accepted standard.
Our priority is to ensure that your planning condition is discharged as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
At YourEnvironment, Desktop Study Reports are the cornerstone of our business and we are proud of our reputation for offering the most economic Desktop Study reports on the market.
Our reports are designed to meet the requirements for planning condition discharge. We carry out all our Desktop Study Reports on a fixed fee basis with no hidden extras.

The contaminated land regime in the UK follows a standard process of moving through several stages with a Phase 1 Desktop Study being first, followed by Phase 2 Intrusive Investigation if required and validation and verification being last.
