Full condition - building recording

Therefore, it is important that a record is made before any conversion or demolition takes place.

In view of this the following recommendation would be made in line with Planning Policy Guidance Note 16: Archaeology and Planning (DoE 1990):

Recommendation: Full condition - building recording

'No demolition/ conversion or preliminary groundwork's of any kind shall take place until the applicant has secured the implementation of a programme of archaeological work in accordance with a written scheme of investigation which has been submitted by the applicant and approved by the local planning authority'.

This the wording used by Essex County Council which may have led you to my website. I am able to provide this service to the required standard for submission to the Local and County Authority. Please review my sections on Historic Buildings and Archaeological Recording.
