Property buyers are becoming increasingly concerned about the expansion of energy resources, especially relating to hydraulic fracturing.

This, plus the potential impacts from HS2 and the disruption it brings, means they’re looking for certainty ahead of purchase.

Why this report?

This combined report provides insight on the location of both planned and existing energy extraction and generation installations, including hydrocarbon drilling wells and power stations. It also details the proximity of the property to the Crossrail 1 network and proposed High Speed 2 route.

What does 'Order in Progress' mean?

Order in progress is a status we assign when your report or data is being produced. You will receive your product within the defined turnaround time.

Orders will be placed within 24 hours, and a member of the team will be in contact if we require further information. If you order states “On Hold”, this is because one of our environmental consultants has raised a query with your order. This query will have been emailed to you.
