Bargate Centre, Southampton
February 2017 | Bargate Property Ltd
PJO Archaeology has been appointed archaeological consultant for the redevelopment of the Bargate Centre in Southampton. This is a shopping centre constructed in 1990 which is now redundant. The site is archaeologically sensitive as it lies in the north-east corner of the medieval walled town at Southampton. Excavations in the 1980s revealed remains of prehistoric, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval date. We are advising the client on the scope of further archaeological investigations which may be required under the terms of the National Planning Policy Framework and Southampton City Council's policy on archaeology and planning.
