ARCHAEOLOGICAL DESK-BASED ASSESSMENT
Heritage asset is an industry jargon term for anything of archaeological or historic value and importance such as Listed buildings, archaeological sites or Historic Parks and Gardens. This variant of the Desk-Based Assessment features more emphasis on assessing the significance of assets and impacts upon this significance as result of the client's proposal. This is perhaps a more philosophical approach in some regards, in that the analysis regards abstract concepts such as the setting of the assets, beyond only visual impact, and takes into account things like value and meaning.
Heritage Statements can inform project design, anticipate planning issues, and recommend mitigation strategies. Cursus Archaeology's expertise will give you an advantage in anticipation of the planning process.
