archaeological desk-top assessments

 archaeological desk-top assessments Developers are frequently requested to produce archaeological desk-top assessments to determine whether there are any significant archaeological remains beneath a development site and to draw up mitigation strategies to reduce the impact of the proposed development on the archaeological resource.

A desk-top assessment will combine a walk over of the study area with a thorough investigation of documentary records, historical maps and plans of the area, photograph evidence, geological information as well as all relevant data from the local Historic Environment Record (HER).

TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning has the capacity and expertise to undertake archaeological desk-top assessments on behalf of developers to the standards recommended by the Institute of Field Archaeologists, and its report will help developers identify the archaeological potential of a site as well as any significant risks or costly delays.
 

archaeological desk-top assessments - case studies

 archaeological desk-top assessment - Southwark Rotherhithe New Road, Southwark

TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning provided an archaeological desk-top survey for the redevelopment of a vacant site for a mixed development providing a new school and housing.

By a combination of site survey, historical research and an investigation of the Greater London Sites and Monuments Records, the desk-top survey identified that the site had a moderate archaeological potential and the desktop survey has now been used to inform a more intrusive archaeological evaluation of the site in advance of the proposed development.

 archaeological desk-top assessment - Wandsworth, London John Paul II RC High School Site, Wandsworth, London

TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning provided an archaeological desk-top survey for a large school site in Wandsworth that was to be redeveloped for new housing.

By a combination of site survey, historical research and an investigation of the Greater London Sites and Monuments Records, the desk-top survey identified that the site had a low to moderate archaeological potential and proposed mitigation strategies to minimise the potential impact of the development on any in-situ archaeological remains.

The desktop survey has now been approved by Greater London Archaeology Advisory Service, moving the redevelopment of the site one step further forward.

 archaeological desk-top assessment - Westminster, London Shepherd Street, Westminster, London

To assist in the development of a basement extension to a house in Mayfair, TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning provided an archaeological desk based assessment to address the heritage issues. The report identified that the site had a low archaeological potential and with this information the planners at Westminster granted planning permission.

 archaeological desk-top assessment - Lutterworth, Leicestershire Moorbarns Way, Lutterworth, Leicestershire

To support the client’s proposals to redevelop a site to the south of Lutterworth for new housing, TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning prepared an archaeological desk-top assessment to assess the known and potential archaeology within the site.

Following thorough historic research, using the local Historic Environment Record, and a site survey, the assessment identified that the site had a moderate archaeological potential for Roman remains and proposed a mitigation strategy to minimise any impact on the in-situ archaeological remains.

 archaeological desk-top assessment - Newark, Nottinghamshire Millgate, Newark, Nottinghamshire

To assist in the redevelopment of a site for new housing close to the centre of Newark, TRIGPOINT Conservation & Planning provided an archaeological desk-top assessment to address the heritage issues.

Having indicated that the site was of archaeological interest the report was able to advise on mitigation strategies to minimise any impact on the in-situ archaeological remains and with this information the planners at Newark and Sherwood did not raise any objections to the implications of the development on any buried archaeology.
