Whether you are looking for an independent consultant to help negotiate your way through the planning process or for a high quality specialist report, we have the skills you are after. All our specialist reports have a well-earned reputation for quality, thoroughness and objectiveness which, amongst other benefits, minimises the risk that unexpected (and expensive to deal with) remains will turn up once construction has started.
Local authorities often require Desk Based Assessments to be undertaken early in the planning process, which means they can play a vital role in helping developers to plan ahead. Archaeology Wales can draw of years of experience in undertaking studies of this type. Our staff can offer high quality, professional, advice to clients whatever the complexity of the scheme proposed.
For larger developments, specialist archaeological chapters are often undertaken as part of wider ranging assessments, for example Environmental Impact Assessments. Archaeology Wales has undertaken many such studies, particularly in advance of proposed wind farm developments.
Archaeology Wales has undertaken many desk based studies of a more specialist nature. These include Conservation Management Plans, which are often undertaken as part of grant applications for Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Agreements, and Documentary Research targeted at answering specific development needs.
