Coastal Land and/or Mining Stability Assessment

Information required and when requiredInformation Required/Guidance

Coastal Land Stability/Mining Stability Assessment


1. where the site or adjacent area is suspected or likely to be unstable

2. on land within 200 metres of cliffs, ridges or steep embankments, steep slopes

3. land with past or current mining activities

The scope and contents of the report will be site dependent and must be determined by the competent person carrying it out, but should include:

  • An assessment of local geology
  • The land stability history of the site
  • Site inspection
  • Some ground investigation e.g. soil testing, slope stability analysis and reporting
  • Assessment of land stability risks
  • Mitigation measures.

The supporting information should consider the effects of both natural and manmade underground cavities and ground compression.
