Earth Environmental and Geotechnical we are delighted to be recognised in the Top 50 UK Geotechnical Consultancy Businesses. This year we are the 34th largest Geotechnical Consultancy practice in UK. This is a fantastic result achieved through the dedication and expertise of our brilliant team.

Here at Earth Environmental & Geotechnical we are routinely commissioned to provide Coal Mining Risk Assessments (CMRA) to accompany planning applications.
A CMRA is required when a relevant development falls within a Coal Authority development high risk area, due to either former underground workings, potential shallow mineworkings or abandoned mineshafts.

Do I need a Phase 1 Desk Study?

If you are planning to develop a site you will generally need to complete a Phase 1 Desk Study.

A Phase 1 Desktop Study is a preliminary risk assessment which highlights the potential areas of concern of developing on the proposed site. The report will collate and review a wide range of published information about the specific site to gain detailed information of the development sites historical, geological and environmental location.

The development of Brownfield land will continue to be a focus for the next few years in the aim to provide much needed housing throughout the UK. The Government hopes to transform unused and derelict buildings, while making the most of brownfield land. Also to tackle the housing shortage in urban areas by enabling commercial premises to be converted into new homes through a fast-track planning permission process.

Do you need a flood risk assessment for planning permission? Unsure what a FRA (Flood Risk Assessment) is? If you are planning a new development you may have been told that you need a flood risk assessment as part of your planning application submission. But you may be unsure why you need a FRA as your development site is not near a river or at immediate risk to flooding.
