A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage provided heritage support for an outline planning application for an urban extension to Bridport. Following on from earlier work, Orion Heritage managed a geophysical survey that established that the site had limited archaeological potential. 

Following negotiations with Dorset County Council, it was agreed that any archaeological evaluation works would be undertaken as a condition of outline planning consent. An assessment of the the potential effects of the proposed development on the grade II Vearse Farm farmhouse, a number of listed buildings and the conservation area in the centre of Bridport was undertaken. Orion produced a heritage chapter for the ES that supported the outline planning application.
