A - Z Projects

Churchill Retirement Living had been granted planning permission for the redevelopment of a former car showroom and garage.  The planning consent had a condition requiring a programme of archaeological investigation ahead of development commencing.  Orion Heritage undertook consultations with the LPA's planning archaeologist and agreed to a very limited trenching programme.  Orion sought tenders for the agreed scheme of work and managed the fieldwork and report production.  The trenching established that the site had no archaeological ptential and consequently the releveant planning condition was discharged with no requirement for further mitigation investigations.
