Q.

I am buying a 1940s property in a conservation area, where can I find details concerning the state of upkeep?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together records about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area. Local conservation areas are set up by Central Bedfordshire who oversee conservation area concerns from paths and footpaths to the inhibition of poorly maintained pavements.

Q.

How is Sandy contaminated land investigated?

Potton Landfill, Carthagena Road, Bedfordshire, SG19 2NQ, for example, may be a source of local contamination.
