Mine Search Cornwall

A desk-top mining search is a review of our extensive archive which is used to appraise the mining subsidence threat to a property.

Our mine searches are usually around 10 pages long, and include a simple summary of risk and further work required on the cover page.

Our reports are concise, cost effective and delivered within 48 – 72 hours.

For more information on why a mine search is required, and what it should contain, Cornwall Council’s useful ‘Validation Guide’ A Guide to Submitting Planning Applications is available here.

Mine searches are often combined with a Phase 1 Preliminary Risk Assessment, or ‘Desk Study.’ More information on Phase 1s is available here.
