Archaeological & Architectural Impact Assessment
Some protected structures or buildings within an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA) are also listed in the Record of Monuments and Places and therefore a combined assessment is required in order to assess the archaeological and earlier historical nature of the building. Therefore it may be necessary for a developer to undertake a combined Archaeological & Architectural Heritage Impact Assessment in order to satisfy the planning requirements of the Authorities.
We undertake this type of combined assessment where there is a double designation of Recorded Monument and Protected Structure/ACA. A number of structures are listed monuments and protected buildings, meaning that they are afforded statutory protection under the provisions of the National Monuments Acts (1930-2014) and the Local Planning & Development Acts (2000-2015).
