Heritage (policy) support and consultancy

Developing  heritage policies, upholding and updating them is the responsibility of regional an local government authorities. Local authorities mostly stipulate their statutory requirements and conditions on archaeology and cultural heritage as part of their planning procedures. These are usually based on archaeological and historic inventarisations, characterisations and research agendas. Vestigia has a substantial track record advising and assisting municipal-, and regional authorities on the formulation of adequate heritage policy. We provide expert guidance, enabling the client to establish justified priorities and considerate decisions. If necessary, we can work quickly and efficiently to translate survey results and archaeological content on to legible maps, as well as suitable and practical spatial planning statutes and regulations.

Our experienced consultants are used to advising and supporting governmental clients on the implementation of heritage policy. We can work either on the basis of a specified single contract,  on subscription base during longer periods, or via temporary secondment of staff to work within the clients’ organisation.

Our heritage services and products include:

  • Archaeological briefs, research guidelines and specifications
