Archaeological advice for developers

Our Standards for Archaeological Work document is currently being updated and a new version will be available here soon. This will set out practical guidelines for a consistent approach to the management of the historic environment within the planning process in Highland. For the reporting stage of works, please see the Reporting Standards for Archaeological Work.

The standards will be intended for use by all those involved in the planning process – to inform planners and applicants of the specific requirements of a particular condition and to make sure historic environment practitioners conduct fieldwork to an acceptable standard.

Please contact the Historic Environment Team for any additional queries regarding requirements for archaeological work.
