A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage provided the heritage expert witness for the appeal against refusal of planning permission for a proposed 7 turbine wind farm. One of Orion Heritage's Directors had provided heritage consultancy advice for the planning application at ES in a previous employment. Planning permission was refused: in part on the grounds of the effect on the signifcance of a number of designated heritage assets and the lack of an archaeological evaluation. 

Following negotiations with the LPA's archaeological advisors, Orion Heritage organised and managed the archaeological evaluation of the proposed scheme. This proved that the impact on archaeology was not an issue and, following this, Lincolnshire County Council withdrew their reason for refusal.  

Orion Heritage provided the heritage expert witness at the appeal. The results of the Public Inquiry are awaited.
