The future for London's archaeology - 14 September. A CIfA London Group debate and discussion, CPD event; followed by the group AGM sponsored by CgMs Consulting What impact will the proposed loosening of planning controls have on our ability to do archaeology in London? Will sites be missed? Will time on site be under even greater pressure? Will post-excavation get squeezed even more? Will preservation in situ be lost? What are: the Housing Bill; the proposed abolition of pre-commencement planning conditions; planning permission in principle for brownfield sites? What are their implications for the archaeology sector, for jobs and the profession? Threats or opportunities?
