In late 2017 we had the pleasure of working with a new client on the assessment of the likely settlement beneath the roads, drives and driveways at a proposed housing development site in Yorkshire. The ground comprised soft alluvial clays and peats, and some land-raising was required. Movements were estimated based on available information supported by published data and correlations. Due to the magnitude of movements, a range of treatment options were suggested and the design of the development is presently being advanced.
