Groundsure’s Fire Insurance Plans report helps you see the past more clearly for contaminated land assessments.

High resolution historic imagery featuring Charles E. Goad plans, presents information more clearly and in context for better contamination risk assessments.

Fire Insurance Plans

This report feature Charles E. Goad plans that, in addition to showing the materials used in building construction and the location of water supplies, show the location of particular fire hazards such as chemical storage and processing areas, ovens and other such areas that are of interest to contaminated land practitioners.

The plans were produced from 1878 until 1970 for the most important towns and cities in Great Britain at that time using a scale of 1:480 (1 inch to 40 feet). As a result, coverage for these towns varies.

Groundsure’s Fire Insurance Plans cover relevant sites up to two hectares in most major UK cities including Manchester, Coventry, Sheffield, Plymouth, Cardiff, Dover, Goole, London, Glasgow and more.
