The Project

Geo-Environmental Services Limited, was instructed by Devine Homes to undertake a desk based soil and agricultural land assessment for a proposed development on a site in Whitstable. The scope of the report was therefore to assess the feasibility of the site in advance of any development, with respect to the local authority’s “Local Plan” procedures.

When producing the report Geo-Environmental utilised published information on climate, geology, soils and published DEFRA Provisional (pre-1988) ALC (agricultural land classification) information, together with information on rural land designations, for example, agri-environmental schemes, forestry and woodland schemes and other land based schemes, in order to judge what classification to recommend for the land.
