A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage undertook a heritage desk-based assessment for a proposed residential development on the outskirts of Hailsham. In order to better define the archaeological risks, Orion Heritage organised and managed a geophysical survey which established that the site had relatively low archaeological potential. As the site is located on the edge of the Pevensey Levels, a limited geoarchaeological borehole survey was agreed with East Sussex County Council and implemented ahead of planning permission being granted.

Outline planning permission has been granted with a condition requiring archaeological evaluation and possible follow on mitigation works.
