The historic environment is an important consideration in the development framework, protected by legislation and policy at a local, regional and national level.
Our experienced consultancy team has an established track record in advising clients throughout the development process, from early-stage feasibility studies, through assessment and the submission of planning applications, to the discharge of planning conditions.

Archaeological project management
We have a proven track record of helping clients navigate their projects from inception, through to the successful discharge of all archaeological planning conditions.
Written Schemes of Investigation
Written Schemes of Investigation (WSI) are documents which define the scope and standards of archaeological or other heritage studies.
Desk-based assessments (DBA) are documents which are requested by planning authorities to enable them to make fully-informed planning decisions.
Environmental Impact Assessment
Our team has extensive experience of the assessment of large-scale developments which fall under the EIA Regulations.
Historic landscape studies
In Wales, specific areas of the country are defined in the Registers of Landscapes of Outstanding/Special Historic Interest in Wales. Developments which fall within, or close to, these historic landscapes are required to be assessed.
