Development and construction activities can often be subject to restrictions associated with the historic environment, which includes archaeology and cultural heritage.
Local planning authorities, curators and regulators apply a range of general and project specific requirements and conditions. These can be both complex and stringent, requiring detailed negotiation and progression of robust, convincing and effective strategies to meet expectations and requirements, alongside high quality reporting.
Our experienced experts support clients through the development process, offering independent and impartial advice from project conception to completion, and subsequent operation. Working in partnership with our clients and wider project teams.
