POLICY QL14 - Scheduled Ancient Monuments and other Archaeological Sites

  1. Development which would have a direct or indirect adverse effect on the site, setting or amenity value of a Scheduled Ancient Monument, or other archaeological remains of national importance, will not be permitted as there will be a presumption in favour of the physical preservation of such remains in situ.
  2. Development which would have a direct or indirect adverse effect on the site or setting of archaeological remains of regional, county, or local importance will not be permitted unless it is clearly demonstrated that the following criteria are met:-
    1. there are no reasonable alternative means of meeting the need for development appropriate to the level of importance of the archaeological site and its setting; and
    2. the reasons for the development outweigh the archaeological importance of the site and its setting and the need to safeguard the wider stock of such settings.
