Heritage FAQ’s

Please see below for some of the questions which we regularly get asked. We will update these on a regular basis as others are asked of us throughout the year.

What is a Heritage Statement/ Assessment?

It is a specialist assessment of the intrinsic historical and heritage values of a site or building or development land. The nature, scope and level of detail required will vary considerably but should not be confused with, for example, a Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) which is a very much more specific and specialist activity measuring data against requisite criteria.

What other types/names of Heritage related documents are there?

We work on a wide range of projects, including:

Each of these have varying qualifying criteria and requirements.

Which UK areas do you cover?

We have been providing Heritage and Archaeology services throughout England and Wales since 1997.

How long does it take to produce a Heritage Statement/ Assessment?

We usually estimate 4-6 weeks, which allows for the requisite acquisition of data from the Historic Environment Record.
