The project is a redevelopment site, developed over the existing building after demolition; hence there is no availability of top soil for landscape reuse. Will the criterion be applicable if the test report is submitted that the soil is not usable for landscape?
Project is required to submit pre-construction site photographs and Google Earth images indicating the redevelopment area on site. If it is evident that there was no fertile top soil available then the project can claim non-applicability. Further, in that case, top soil testing will not be required.
