We want to work with you to make the whole process as streamlined and efficient as possible. By working in partnership with our clients’ teams, assessing potential risk early, we can provide an accurate and realistic appraisal of the key issues that are likely to arise and, more importantly, suggest a strategy to address them. We can help our clients avoid problematic sites and help identify those where cultural heritage constraints can be avoided or mitigated.
Taking account of cultural heritage at the design stage of a project can have numerous benefits. For instance, it can improve design quality by helping it reference the local historic character or allow the construction footprint of the development to avoid key areas of archaeology. This can ease the development’s progress through the planning process and reduce or avoid the need for archaeological excavation, as well as benefiting the historic environment. Headland can advise on how cultural heritage considerations can be accommodated in the design.
