Abstract/Summary

In 1993 the Department of the Environment commissioned the British Geological Survey in association with Entec UK Ltd to undertake a three year study to develop techniques for the synthesis and presentation of earth science information in a form which can be used readily and directly by planners and developers, and by those interested in conservation, and to provide a general introduction to the geological factors most relevant to planning and development in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District (CBMD. The main objectives of the study were to: collect and collate earth science information of relevance to planners, developers, engineers and conservation interests; produce a set of thematic maps on applied geological topics which will assist planning of land use, development and conservation in the study area; produce a summary map showing the main earth science factors relevant to planning and development in the area; provide two reports, one for non-specialists and the other for those with specific technical knowledge in the fields of geology, hydrogeology, engineering geology and mineral resources.
