UK Radon Potential
UK Radon Potential shows where higher levels of exposure are likely in the United Kingdom. The data can be used to provide an answer to one of the standard legal search enquiries (CON29) during house purchase and the level of protection required for extensions and new builds.
Radon Potential is the definitive map data set of radon-affected areas in the United Kingdom and a valuable tool in understanding and mitigating risk. It was created jointly by the British Geological Survey (BGS), Health Protection Agency (HPA), Public Health England (PHE) and Geological Survey Northern Ireland (GSNI) using long-term radon measurements, made in over 479,000 homes across Great Britain and 23,000 homes across Northern Ireland, combined with geological map data.
The product is a polygon-based vector data set at 1:50k scale, making it suitable for local to region level analysis. It is available in all major GIS data formats.
