Japanese Knotweed Construction Site Supervision

Appoint us a your Knotweed Clerk of Works to supervise Japanese Knotweed treatment on your construction site. We will ensure that the treatment goes as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Our site supervisor will also ensure that all legislation is strictly adhered to.

We can provide Tool Box Talks for your staff so that everyone is aware of the the problems associated with Japanese Knotweed on construction sites. Local Authorities may insist on a Knotweed site supervisor as part of planning consent and will almost definitely want to see Knotweed Management Plan. If you plan to claim Land Remediation Relief from HMRC, our site supervisor will keep detailed records to satisfy the Tax Inspector.
