Desk-based Assessment – EIA – Written Schemes of Investigation

Lanpro provide a full range of archaeological consultancy services, ranging from initial scoping appraisals of sites in advance of purchase or development, through to desk-based assessments to inform planning applications and, for large developments, input into Environmental Impact Assessments.

Following planning consent, we can produce a detailed fieldwork method statement to help clear any potential conditions – a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) – and also act as expert witnesses to support your application.

Our team are all full Members of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists, and their extensive range of skills and experience allows us to identify any archaeological issues at an early stage, and then negotiate on your behalf with the local planning authority so these can be handled in the most appropriate and cost-effective way.
