Heritage Impact Assessment

A Heritage Impact Assessment may take in to account the following:

- Archaeological Remains both above and below ground
- Historic Buildings and sites, which may include, gardens, villages greens, canals and ridges.
- Historic Areas
- Other structures of architectural merit.
- Historic Landscapes

Archaeological remains can date back from the dawn of mankind to around the time of the second world war, perhaps even more recent than that. Consultations with organisations such as English Heritage may help deduce whether a site / building has historic importance.

 A baseline study for heritage impact should be assembled, this should include;

- A summary of archaeological context

- An inventory of archaeological assets and an evaluation of these assets.

- An informed expectation of potential assets to be found in further investigations, and past construction which may have damaged / destroyed archaeological resources.

- A map of project area showing assets.
