A young contaminated land officer at Stockport Council refused to accept the report with just one borehole sunk – quite rightly. Kicking and screaming Stockport Council carried out further investigations.

Boreholes 1, 2 , 3 and 5 are not done over the infilled pits, so unlikely to find much.

Borehole 4 over the pits says no well. It was “vexatious” of me to ask the implications of this.

CBR 1, 2 and 3 are nothing to do with contamination, rather the stability of the land.

Contamination trial pits 1, 2, 3 and 4 were done at the south side of the site, not where this school was going, which was directly over the old infilled rubbish pits.
