This report forms an integral part of of the environmental geological mapping project of the south-central Leeds area, undertaken on behalf of the Department of the Environment and described in the BGS Technical Report WA/92/1 by Lake, et al., 1992. The current report describes the classification of the deposits encountered in the south-central Leeds area in terms of engineering geological units (units of similar engineering characteristics), and the assessment of these units with respect to their geotechnical properties and anticipated engineering behaviour. Classificatiojn and assessment was based on the creation of a geotechnical database containing geotechnical data extracted from site investigation reports, and subsequent statistical analysis of the dataset. The report concludes with a section highlighting the engineering geological implications for planning and development in the area. Summary geotechnical data for all the geological deposits encountered are presented in tabular form in Appendix 1.
