Brook Cottage – County Archaeologist Advises against application until an evaluation has been undertaken

On 8 September 2017, the county archaeologist wrote:

Dear Sarah.

Thank you for consulting me on the above application. This location is archaeologically sensitive, being within 150 m of where a Roman building was revealed during work on the northern car park at Lydiard Park. There is also a medieval settlement at Wick Farm within 100 m of the proposed development site. I advise that an archaeological evaluation is undertaken across the site and reported on prior to the determination of the planning application.

Regards, Melanie
