Archaeological Desk-based Assessments for Developers

As part of the Urban Archaeological Database being delivered by the University of Leicester Archaeological Service (ULAS), Archaeological Desk-based Assessments have been prepared for the City’s five key regeneration areas. These provide a base-line assessment of the archaeological potential and other ancillary information for these areas, which can be used by developers, the City Council and other parties in preparing schemes for development.

Steve Bowyer, Leicester’s Heritage Regeneration Project Officer, says: “The database as a whole will bring together in one place a wide raft of information about Leicester’s history and evolution as a city. These desk-based assessments focus in on the five key regeneration areas and will provide developers with ‘up front’ information about the potential for archaeological sensitivity in response to development opportunities.”

For disk copies of the assessment reports for Abbey Meadows, New Business Quarter, New Community, Retail Circuit or Waterside, please contact Leicester Regeneration Company on .

The reports are the copyright of ULAS and are valid only as per their date of authorship. They form part of a city center study being funded by LSEP and English Heritage, and administered with the assistance of LRC and the City Council. The full database itself will be completed later in 2006.
