Scope of works
ADAS archaeological consultants prepared a historic environment desk-based assessment as part of the planning application which assessed the impact that the groundworks for the construction of the wind turbine might have on buried archaeological remains as well as the impact that the development might have on the settings of heritage assets in the surrounding landscape.
ADAS archaeological consultants, working closely with ADAS landscape architects, were able to demonstrate that the proposed development would have a less than substantial impact on the setting of Londesborough Registered Park and Garden by using appropriate visually verified photomontages and wireframe images. As a result of this work, initial concerns raised by Historic England and the Conservation officer were addressed to their satisfaction.
ADAS archaeological consultants negotiated effectively with Humber Archaeology Partnership, the archaeological advisors to the Local Planning Authority, to ensure that archaeological mitigation recommended by the local authority was proportionate to the impact and scale of the development.
The planning application for this single wind turbine was subsequently approved in a meeting of the planning committee for East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
