However see information on brownfield sites and old equipment below. If either of these is applicable you should continue. The guidelines for these are later in the scheme.

If neither of these apply you have completed the scheme and do not need to continue. Print this page and keep it for your records.

Ask your local authority planning department to find out if you are on a brownfield site.

Old equipment

eg ovens, brakes, soundproofing, insulating mats, fire blankets, oven gloves, ironing surfaces
