Details & Location

Hapton, west of Burnley, UK

Status

Post construction management and maintenance

RSK Landscape (now part of Stephenson Halliday) was engaged in planning the restoration of an area of brownfield contaminated land at the former William Blythe chemical works. The area was to be remediated and returned to public open space adjacent to a planned residential development.

The site comprises a landfill mound that has been capped and landscaped, a sustainable drainage system (SuDS) for the mound, including ditches, a pond and an existing stream, areas of tree planting and Canal Walk, a new residential development by Gleeson Homes.

We are now in year eight of the landscape maintenance programme. Our long-term involvement has provided consistency, value for money and in-depth site knowledge. RSK has also completed a retrospective biodiversity net gain assessment to guide landscape maintenance regimes and improve habitats as they mature.
