Groundsure Energy

The Groundsure Energy report provides insight into planned and existing energy schemes in the vicinity of the land or property that could potentially affect the use and enjoyment for your client.

Property buyers are becoming increasingly concerned about the potential affects the expansion of energy resources in the UK might have on their property purchase. High profile concern over hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and wind farms mean this is a real factor that could impact local property prices for affected areas.

Groundsure also offers a combined energy and infrastructure report for residential property transactions. This includes details on HS2 and Crossrail 1 as well as energy - see more details.

Product Details

The report provides a detailed assessment of energy and infrastructure issues that could affect the value and enjoyment of a property.

The information includes:

Key features

Why is this important?

Identifies if the property is within a 25km radius of existing or proposed power stations, nuclear facilities, oil, gas, coalbed methane, shale gas exploration and extraction sites, including those that are proposed.

Property owners may be concerned with the proximity of renewable energy plants to their property.

Existing or proposed large scale energy and infrastructure projects including the Yorkshire and Humber CCS Pipeline, the Keuper Gas Storage Project, the Richborough Connection Project and 95 other projects.

Large scale projects can be lengthy which could affect the enjoyment and use of the property. Planning records are updated weekly giving you the most up-to-date data.

Identifies if the property is within either an existing licenced block or a block that has been offered for future exploration.

Given the potential high impact of energy exploration and production, including hydraulic fracturing (fracking), the report enables you to meet your client care requirement and is a valuable addition to your due diligence obligations. Energy exploration is once more high on the government agenda, meaning that the likelihood of property and land being affected is also on the rise.

Identifies if the property is within 15km of existing or proposed wind and solar farms.

Property owners may be concerned with the presence of a wind farm close to their home or business. Some common concerns relate to their effect on the landscape, potential impacts to property price and noise pollution.

Full planning application details for proposed sites are provided for further investigation.
