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. It has been agreed with East Sussex County Council that all further archaeological works will be undertaken as a condition of outline planning permission.
