Contamination to Land at Farringdon


“The plot of land address that this request refers to is:-

Rosedale, Farringdon,

The information I require is to do with land contamination or any health concerns one should have living so close to a demolition and salvage yard.
The yard in question is:

Olds Demolition & Salvage Ltd
Unit 1 Waldrons Farm Business Units
Sidmouth Road
Ex5 2jx

I would also like to know any history of contamination to land or any potential risks to residents living nearby.

On plans it shows what I believe to be a stream running from the salvage yards land to the plot in question, Potentially another risk?”


Please note that Devon County Council is not responsible for land contamination and therefore does not hold the information requested.  This is a function provided by District and Unitary councils in Devon.

In this instance, we would advise you to contact East Devon District Council and The Environment Agency (who have responsibility for pollution control).

Both organisations can be contacted via the links provided.
