 Planning and Development  
   
New planning guidance called the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was introduced in 2012 replacing the earlier guidance and sets out the policies and principles for planning for conservation of the Historic Environment.  
   
Chris Butler Archaeological Services Limited can offer a full range of services in connection with the archaeological requirements of planning and development, including:  
   

 Heritage Statements:  
   
CBAS can produce a Heritage Statement, at the appropriate level, to accompany your planning application.  
   
We have the necessary expertise, using the full range of resources available, to assess the impact of the proposed development on any heritage assets affected.

 Desk-based Assessments:  
   
Full desk based assessments may be required where it is judged that there is potential for the presence of heritage assets of archaeological interest.  
   
CBAS can produce high quality and thorough desk based assessments to meet the requirements of the planning authority.

 Evaluation:  
   
Often the most effective way of establishing whether there is archaeology present on a development site is to excavate some evaluation trenches, sometimes in association with other exploratory techniques such as geophysics. Whether large or small scale, CBAS can undertake evaluation excavations efficiently and economically, providing quick results and advice on how to mitigate any archaeological remains discovered. (Note: if archaeological remains are discovered there will often need to be further excavation work required prior to any development taking place).

 Watching briefs:  
   
CBAS has many years experience of providing watching briefs during development, and we will work with your on-site contractors to minimise delays.  
   
We can provide an experienced and qualified archaeologist on site during the watching brief, with appropriate back up resources in the event of archaeological remains being discovered.

 Excavation:  
   
Occasionally important archaeological remains may be revealed by preliminary work, and although this may not stop your development, the remains may need to be fully excavated and recorded before the development can start.  
   
CBAS can develop and agree an appropriate plan with the County Archaeologist to undertake the excavations in a cost and time efficient manner.
