site licence SL261 Brades Hall Farm, Oldbury, West Midlands

Mr Carroll made this Freedom of Information request to Environment Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Environment Agency,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the
information to which I am entitled under the freedom of information act and the environmental information regulations.
In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.
Please provide by electronic means the full waste disposal site licence SL 261 issued I believe in 1978.
Could you also provide a map of the site as it appeared and the area which it now occupies and summary of when this licence was surrendered and the site remediated if indeed this was the case? Could you also indicate if any additional modifications were made to the license or at the site during the life of the license in respect of additional materials that could be deposited. A Sandwell council site investigation carried out in 1993 recorded a level of 8.8% methane and 3.3% carbon dioxide. Do you have any further information about gas control measures or monitoring that was introduced after this time or after the creation of the agency in 1996?

Yours faithfully,

Mr Carroll

Dear Mr Carroll

 

Enquiry regarding SL261 Brades Hall Farm, Oldbury, West Midlands

 

Thank you for your enquiry which was received on 6 February 2020.

 

We respond to requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

I attach details of the site requested.

 

The site is a natural depression, with the side walls and underlying base
consisting of Etruria Marl.

 

The site was licenced in 1979 for the deposit of foundry sand, furnace
slag, refractory bricks, demolition material, subsoil and topsoil as part
of a land reclamation and stabilisation scheme.  The licence holders
Birlee Industrial Limited, applied to have the licence modified in order
that excavation, quarries and construction materials could be deposited at
the site.  However, this was refused by Sandwell MBC.

 

A perimeter passive migration control system was installed along the
adjoining site boundary.

 

Gas monitoring is conducted via a network of permanent gas monitoring
points in and around the Temple Way Estates.

 

The site is now a residential housing development, the licence having been
surrendered in 1994.

 

Sandwell MBC continues to monitor the site and will hold further
information regarding this site.

 

We recommend that you contact the Local Authority, who may hold additional
information regarding this site.

 

Please refer to [1]Open Government Licence  which explains the permitted
use of this information.

 

Please get in touch if you have any further queries or contact us within
two months if you’d like us to review the information we have sent.

 

Yours sincerely
