A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage was instructed to provide archaeological consultancy services in support of a planning appeal against refusal of planning permission for development of assisted living apartments. The archaeological issue related to the need for archaeological trial trenching prior to the determination of the planning application. 

Orion Heritage was able to engage with the LPA’s archaeology advisors and agree a reduced scheme of works which was acceptable to the client. While the site contained remains of interest, Orion Heritage was able to agree a Statement of Common Ground with the LPA that the remains could be dealt with via conditioned works, and so were not a constraint on development of the site.
