Wessex Archaeology regularly contributes chapters to Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and has a proven track record of producing robust, defensible documents for some of the largest construction projects in the UK.
The Environmental Statement (ES) for an EIA is a complex document, particularly when the proposed development is controversial or if it is an infrastructure project.
Accurate and proportionate assessments
An archaeological or cultural heritage chapter for an ES draws on a range of information gathered from a baseline assessment, usually in the form of a desk-based assessment, supported by the results of non-intrusive surveys like geophysics and the results of intrusive archaeological fieldwork. In addition, ES chapters often require input from other disciplines such as ecology, landscape architects and sound specialists.
Our consultants regularly work as part of multi-disciplinary teams and are experienced in drawing data together and carrying out accurate and proportionate assessments in line with local, regional and national planning legislation and policy.
