Archaeology and the Planning Process: An Introduction

This seminar for the Suffolk Preservation Society explores and explains the relationship between archaeology and the planning process in Suffolk. Suffolk has a rich archaeological heritage, a physical record of our past, with many treasures discovered but much yet to be revealed. Archaeology is a material consideration in the planning process and legislation and policy have evolved to achieve a balance between the rights of the landowner and the potential damage to important historical resources. Therefore it is important for those with an interest in our historic environment to understand the role of archaeology in the planning process.
