Archaeology and Heritage

Consultancy Services

Crestwood Environmental provides archaeology and heritage advice for a host of developments ranging from large scale (e.g. residential, minerals or infrastructure) to small scale (e.g. private householder projects) around the UK, with international and Expert Witness level knowledge.

Whilst our work is always undertaken in accordance with best practice guidance, our extensive experience allows us to balance the commercial needs of our clients with ensuring all heritage requirements are met.

We offer a full suite of services and always guide clients through the various heritage-related consenting and legal requirements, whatever the stage of the project, from initial advice, to planning-related assessments, mitigation, investigation, recording and monitoring, and completion of required consent applications.
