Archaeology Consultancy – providing Archaeological Reports for Planning Applications

Our Key Archaeological Services are:

  • Desk Based Assessments (DBAs)
  • Written Schemes of Investigations (WSIs)
  • Discharge / Variation of Archaeological Planning Conditions
  • Scheduled Monument of Consent
  • Archaeological Project Management


We provide Archaeological Services for planning applications on a standalone basis, or if during the planning appraisal it is highlighted that the site is nearby a site of archaeological interest, our inhouse Archaeologist will be involved to provide advice and will provide a quote if additional archaeological reports are required.
