CIfA, CBA, and ALGAO release joint statement on recent planning advocacy

CIfA have released a joint statement with the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) and Association of Local Government Archaeological Officers (ALGAO) in response to the recent announcement of the Neighbourhood Planning and Infrastructure Bill in the Queen's speech. The statement highlights the ongoing advocacy work being done by the sector, particularly CIfA, CBA, and ALGAO, and describes what progress has been made since the announcement.

It has been extremely pleasing to see such a vigorous response from CIfA members and the wider archaeological community to the perceived threat of these reforms and members should be gratified to note that this has been expressly noted by Government officials.
