Our team has extensive experience of the assessment of large-scale developments which fall under the EIA Regulations. Working within inter-disciplinary teams, we are able to take complex projects from Scoping stage, through the production of cultural heritage chapters of Environmental Statements, and where necessary representing clients at Public Inquiry or Examination. We recognise the need to establish effective dialogue with statutory consultees and other stakeholders, to provide clients with robust planning advice, and to produce authoritative and fairly balanced assessments.
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.
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.
