Assisted in the management and co-ordination of the Defence Training College and Aerospace Business Park, MOD St Athan: Environmental Impact Assessment
Prepared an Archaeology and Cultural Heritage ES Chapter for the proposed multi-billion pound Joint Forces’ Training Academy, Welsh Assembly’s Aerospace Business Park and MoD’s service personnel residential development. Considered both the built and archaeological heritage and involved the design and procurement of a multi-phase programme of baseline survey covering archaeology and the nationally important WWII airfield ground defences.
Pre-application negotiations with Local Planning Authority archaeological advisor (Glamorgan Gwent Archaeological Trust) and other stakeholders (including Cadw and Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales) helped secure planning permission at the end of a 20 week determination period, with no unresolved objections on planning or environmental matters from any statutory consultee.
Subsequently prepared an archaeological and built heritage conservation works programme to discharge planning conditions.
