With any construction or capital dredging project in the marine environment there is a risk of direct and indirect effects on known and undiscovered heritage assets. There is also the potential for impacts on the wider heritage resource such as palaeolandscapes or historic seascapes.

Development can therefore be subject to restrictions associated with the marine historic environment. Such restrictions can often be complex and difficult to navigate. Negotiating and progressing effective and proportionate mitigation strategies requires an in-depth understanding of marine heritage, relevant legislative, planning and licensing considerations and the potential impacts such activities can have on heritage assets.

This seminar provides an up-to-date review of current approaches to assessment, consenting and working with the relevant regulators, examining the way that practicality and feasibility of mitigation strategies is key to the success of the project. Followed by the most current thinking on approaches to palaeolandscapes and concluding with arguably one of the best examples in recent times of a large complex capital dredging project and how marine archaeology mitigation was successfully achieved.
