• 8.210 (page 254) is a very useful statement. A reference to the Historic Environment Record would be welcome, as a list of designated and non-designated assets and the main source on the district's archaeological sites. It may be worth relating this paragraph to the information in paragraph 8.198 in the archaeology policy section (WLP8.38), unless policy 8.35 is made more explicitly about all assets (see above). [see policy 8.35] • 8.211 is a welcome statement. Perhaps amend to 'The policy pr

We welcome specific provision for the protection and enhancement of archaeology as well as emphasis that sites of archaeological importance can occur everywhere. We encourage clear guidance on expectations for archaeological recording and the submission of records with an appropriate public record (eg: Historic Environment Records) for archaeological remains that are not to be retained in situ. Where suggested sites are located in areas of known archaeological potential, weight should be given

Draft Policy WLP8.38 is a wide and onerous policy that requires a desk based archaeological assessment (as a minimum) to be included with 'any' planning application. The requirement for archaeological assessment is set down in the local planning authorities' local validation guidance and where relevant the County Council archaeological service should be consulted on planning applications. On face value the policy appears to be requiring a full archaeological assessment for changes of use appli

The Interactive map shows very sparse identification of "Archaeological Site of Regional Importance" (by clicking the layers dropdown). #2.83 is the first response to a search for "Archaeological". The region is rich in archaeology (many more sites that the three identified on the interactive map), as shown for example in the attachment on maps and in descriptions; the attachment produced by Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund English Heritage Project Ref: 3987. The attachment is commended, thou
