One project through the planning process

18th century brick kiln at Euston, Suffolk

This project is an example of how a site may proceed through the planning process. Suffolk Archaeology CIC was involved from the initial desktop investigation of the site's potential for heritage assets prior to submission of a planning application, through programs of non-intrusive and intrusive site survey in consultation with the Local Planning Authority and its archaeological advisors, to the granting of planning consent and the imposition by condition of full excavation to 'preserve by record' the site's archaeological deposits, and the final assessment and analysis/publication of results.
