I am a Mature student (in my 3rd year at the University of the West of England, Bristol) currently researching my Dissertation on "Environmental Impact Assessement of brownfield sites redevelopment"

For this (which counts as part of my BSc Hons in Environmental Quality and Resource Management) I need to locate :-

  1. Some fairly reliable and comprehensive studies of contaminated land in the UK,

  2. Some case studies in and around Bristol that I might be able to use

I am planning to include some primary data, from core sample analysis for heavy metals, by AAS, so ideally I am trying to find some sites I could physically access, in a battered VW van, with an overdraft with fangs and claws

Thank you so very much for your kind attention, warmest regards

Toni Massari

Dear Micky

Thank you for all the trouble you have gone to, on my behalf, I am really grateful.

Since my e-mail I have come across a mine of information - by sheer coincidence and utter luck: I happened to be passing by the Harbourside Centre, here in Bristol, (of which I had ignored the existence), which happens to be the Project Management centre of the Harbourside development.

I popped in to ask whether they might point me in the direction of a geotechnical survey on Canon's Marsh, the strip of derelict industrial land along the river, on which a multi-function arts and entertainment centre would have been sited, and was told that, as they had just heard that day that the development has lost its Lottery funding, I could have the full geotechnical survey, a giant folder of comprehensive, detailed and up-to-the-minute information on geotechnical, chemical and hydrological data! Whoopee!

I still need other sites, for comparison, so that I can hopefully draw a coherent set of inferences, mostly about the usefulness of the Environmental Impact Assessment process and contaminated land, in preventing re-mobilisation of heavy metals and other toxics.

Naturally I cannot release the information unless/until I have checked the legal obligations which being in possession of this document entails... although I suspect that they are minimal. Moreover, I shall most likely offer it to my Faculty, as it constitutes an invaluable document for students in every School within Built Environment.

However, I do hope to summarise the Geothech. Survey's findings, in tabular form, and I would be delighted to let you have them in electronic format, should that prove of interest to you. If so, would you rather have the Excel spreadsheet, the comma-delimited file or both? Bear in mind that I would probably have to post them in my web-page, as I can only upload to that - it isn't much, but it's all I have! it's on

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it. Take care, I'll keep you posted on my findings.

Ciao

Toni Massari
