Elland Road, Police HQ
Interserve Construction requested Lithos’ assistance to enable discharge of planning conditions associated with construction of a new divisional police headquarters in Leeds. The site had formerly been occupied by Leeds Greyhound Racing Track, and more recently had been used for match-day car parking for Leeds United.
What we did
Initially Lithos acted as the independent Qualified Person to review the Materials Management Plan, produced on behalf of Interserve in accordance with the CL:AIRE Development Industry Code of Practice (The Definition of Waste). Subsequently, Lithos prepared a Remediation Strategy based on the review of various third party ground investigation reports, and liaised with Leeds City Council to gain approval of the Strategy.
Finally, Lithos produced a Verification Report to comply with the requirements of the planning permission and the CL:AIRE Code of Practice. Remediation works covered by the Verification Report included:
- Excavation & off-site removal of surplus soils
- Crushing of relict structures to provide aggregate suitable for re-use in the development
- Provision of gas protection measures in the new building
