A cul-de-sac of 19 residential properties in New Romney had been built over a former gas works site. Removal and replacement of shallow soils in garden areas was required after coal tar contaminants were identified presenting a potential risk to human health. Resident support for the remediation process had to be retained during the remediation works. Working closely with Shepway District Council and consultants RPS, Celtic maximised communication with local residents regarding processes during the Works, and final garden configurations. Works were carried out under an NEC3 Option A contract.
