Archaeological projects can be complex and multi-stranded. They combine a need for planning advice, stakeholder consultation, impact assessment, and the execution of field work and its subsequent analysis. We have a proven track record of helping clients navigate their projects through all of these stages, from their inception, through planning consent, to the successful discharge of all archaeological planning conditions. We understand the demands of commercial projects, including cost- and risk-management, the need to work to tight deadlines, and the requirement to balance archaeology alongside wider considerations.
Written Schemes of Investigation
Written Schemes of Investigation (WSI) are documents which define the scope and standards of archaeological or other heritage studies.
Historic Landscape Studies (ASIDOHL)
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.
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.
