POLICY 11 - ARCHAEOLOGY

11.1 Nationally important monuments, including Scheduled Monuments and other sites of national importance and their settings will be preserved. Proposals which fail to preserve those monuments in situ will not be permitted.

11.2 Development proposals that affect sites that are neither Scheduled Monuments nor otherwise of national importance will be dealt with on their merits.

11.3 Where development proposals could affect a site or its setting, the applicant may be required to carry out an archaeological assessment or undertake a site evaluation before any planning application is determined.

This must:

  1. Identify any archaeological remains within and/or adjacent to the application site, AND
  2. Assess the likely impact of the proposed development on any identified remains, AND
  3. Demonstrate the means of reducing any identified impact in order to conserve the remains.

11.4 Only development which would conserve any identified archaeological remains will be permitted. Where development is permitted, recording in advance or during development may be required.
