Archaeological Desk Based Assessment

An Archaeological Desk Based Assessment focuses mainly on assessing the below ground factors associated with a development, providing a clear and impartial assessment of the potential heritage impact associated with a development and how best to avoid them.

Heritage Consultants often undertake archaeological assessments to inform a planning application, or as an information gathering tool to help advise on site design and layout.

The work includes:

  • data orders of the local Historic Environment Record;
  • a site visit and review of data held at the Local Record Office;
  • a detailed impact assessment;
  • recommendations for appropriate investigation or mitigation works, where required
  • project management and full quality assurance.

Works undertaken by AB Heritage comply with the Code of conduct and other relevant regulations of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists. AB Heritage is a Registered Organisation of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and our consultants are individually accredited members
