Solution

Archaeological excavation mitigation was required, with careful management necessary to ensure that areas of the site were signed off by the archaeological advisors in a timely fashion for development works to progress.

Archaeological works included the following:

  • The preparation of a below ground archaeological desk-based assessment to accompany the planning application submission.
  • The co-ordination and management of archaeological monitoring of several phases of geotechnical site investigation works, the results of which accompanied the planning application submission.
  • The co-ordination and management of archaeological evaluation within the existing basement, the results of which have been submitted to progress the discharge of the relevant planning condition.
  • The co-ordination and management of archaeological mitigation works, the results of which will be submitted to progress the discharge of planning conditions attached to the granting of planning consent.
