What lies beneath? – An investigation of archaeology within the planning process

Thursday February 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


All potential development sites with a level of historic interest are likely to require at least a pre-commencement condition, requiring agreement for an archaeological watching brief as well as site monitoring as the groundworks begin, but what does this actually entail and what have we discovered in the process? We look at the interaction between archaeology and planning, and see what Indiana Jones has uncovered recently in the Highlands!

Confirmed speakers:

  • Kirsty Cameron: Archaeologist for Highland Council
  • Andrew Puls: Acting Environment Manager for Highland Council
  • Norman Brockie: Conservation Planner for Highland Council

Core CPD Framework:

– Design – Heritage Conservation (Archaeology) within Planning
