Step 2 : Get professional advice
No matter what type of consent you’re applying for, you should get advice regarding the impacts of your proposal on archaeology. You may need to engage a consulting archaeologist. It’s likely they will be involved throughout the project. This will include involvement in the application, excavation, analysis and reporting.
Step 3: Prepare your application
Commission your experts to help prepare the required documentation for the proposed works at the archaeological site. This may include:
- An outline of your proposed works, including the impact on archaeology
- a description and background history for the site
- a statement of significance of the archaeological site
- the method and level of archaeological investigation proposed including research design and excavation methodology
- an artefact retention policy and artefact management proposal
- curriculum vitae demonstrating the skills and experience of the archaeologist and conservator
- a letter detailing the engagement of the project conservator.
Complete the consent application form, including payment of the application fee. In some instances, fees may be waived. You can request a fee waiver by completing the form and submitting it with your application.
You will be asked to register or log in at the next step so you can save and track your application.
