Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI)

Written Scheme of Investigation If the Notice of Decision for your planning application includes a condition for Archaeology, a Written Scheme of Investiogation (WSI) will be required.

 This will provide information regarding the type of monitoring to be undertaken – Watching Brief, Trial Trenches, Strip, Map and Record.

 It will outline the archaeological methods to be carried out, position of trenches, etc., specific to the individual project.

The WSI will also outline off-site procedures, such as processing of archaeological material and specialist requirement,  which will follow the site work, resulting in the project report.

N.B. The WSI will require approval from planning prior to work being carried out on the development site.
