Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 8.32

Representation ID: 2153

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)

Summary:

this does not accord with the definition of "archaeological interest" in the National Planning Policy Framework; "There will be archaeological interest in a heritage asset if it holds, or potentially may hold, evidence of past human activity worthy of expert
investigation at some point. Heritage assets with archaeological interest are the
primary source of evidence about the substance and evolution of places, and of
the people and cultures that made them." This paragraph should therefore be amended in order for the Plan to accord with the Framework.

OBJECT Buckinghamshire Archaelogical Society (Mr Nigel Wilson)

Summary:

We have a concern about non-designated heritage assets of archaeological significance within the Plan and urge that the following suggested amendments are included in the final version.

Paragraph 8.32: this paragraph needs development to include

(a) The definition of archaeological interest needs to correspond with the definition set out in the NPPF Glossary in Annex 2. This reads `There will be archaeological interest in a heritage asset if it holds, or potentially may hold, evidence of past human activity worthy of expert investigation at some point. Heritage assets with archaeological interest are the primary source of evidence about the substance and evolution of places, and of the people and cultures that made them.'

(b) The identification of the archaeological interest of archaeological sites and historic buildings both above and below the surface of the land should be made in conjunction with the Buckinghamshire County Council Archaeological Service (or any successor organisation), who should take into account the County Council Historic Environment Record and any other relevant information.
