Wind Energy and Archaeology
February 2017 | Various
PJO Archaeology is a specialist archaeological consultant to the wind energy industry. Wind farms are a relatively new feature of the countryside in Britain but their potential impact on archaeological remains is a material consideration in the planning process. PJO Archaeology has worked with clients on projects in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Northumberland and Warwickshire to ensure the effective resolution of archaeological issues before determination of planning applications and subsequent to the granting of permission. We appreciate the sensitive nature of some wind farm projects and have experience of presenting the positive aspects of archaeological issues to a Public Enquiry, most recently (February 2015) in respect of a site at Hemswell Cliff (Lincs.).
Current clients include Energie Kontor UK Ltd, RWE Innogy UK Ltd and Broadview Energy Ltd.
