A Phase I Environmental Assessment was undertaken by Delta Simons in February 2021. The report states that a mine shaft has been identified beneath the northernmost corner of the site but that the underground mining was last worked in 1913 and "given the age of the current on-Site buildings (1970s construction), it is considered likely that any issues relating to subsidence or mine gas emissions would have likely been realised." The report also states that "no notices have been given, under section 46 of the Coal Mining Subsidence Act 1991, stating that the land is at risk of subsidence". A copy of the report is available to download.
