Meeting The Planning Conditions

Negotiation & Consultancy

Normally we would aim to have agreed the heritage issues with the LPA’s advisor prior to the planning application being submitted.  This is not always possible and Prospect Archaeology is able to act quickly to resolve any issues and clear a path for development at any stage in the process.

Fieldwork Management

Once planning permission is granted, and assuming that further archaeological work is required, the excavation, recording, analysing and reporting starts in earnest.  Whether it is a simple watching brief of a small part of the development, detailed building recording prior to demolition or 100% excavation of a multi-hectare site, we are expert in managing the process.  We do not maintain an in-house fieldwork team and advocate tendering all major projects.  Our clients can be sure they are getting the best advice, the most appropriate team for each specific project and value for money.  We work hard to ensure our clients’ needs and aspirations are recognised during fieldwork and efforts are targeted on tangible gains.  Where the need for additional work is agreed, we identify solutions that refer directly to the programme our clients are working towards.
