HERITAGE ASSET ASSESSMENT
A heritage asset assessment is often legally required when submitting a request for planning permission. Typically, this takes the form of an archaeological investigation including a desk-based study and field evaluation. The starting block for any archaeological investigation is the desk-based assessment which evaluates the need for further archaeological work to conserve heritage assets.
