Requests for Environmental Information
Although not a statutory requirement, environmental searches are frequently carried out by conveyancing solicitors to identify contamination that might affect the property being offered for sale. These environmental searches are most often provided by commercial organisations and are supplied at various levels of detail, ranging from provision of purely factual information through to detailed interpretation of findings.
If potential land contamination is identified in the search, further enquiries are then often made to the council. The Land and Air Quality Team can respond to all such requests subject to a charge.
Currently the corporate charge for the provision of such information is £25 per hour. Payment can be made in a variety of ways. Either by a cheque made payable to Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC), by a debit or credit card by phoning our customer services team on 01296 585605 or via an invoice. However if you wish to pay by invoice there is an additional administrative charge of £10 that will be added to the final cost.
If you would like to make such a request, please fill in the enquiry form which can be downloaded from the bottom of this page and either post, email or fax it to;

Fax: 01296 585674
Please also include a map showing the extent of the search area and indicate which method of payment you would prefer to use. Once received the Land and Air Quality Team have 3 working days to respond to the request.
