North Dorchester

In 2017 L -P : Archaeology were commissioned by Turnberry UK in order to understand the constraints and opportunities that archaeology poses on land to the north of Dorchester which was being considered for allocation into the Local Plan.


Within a very short time frame, L – P conducted a rapid analysis of HER, historic mapping, LiDAR data, site walkovers and information from archives and libraries in order to provide a comprehensive Archaeological Baseline Document. This document was used to inform the Masterplan of the site and point the proposed development towards the least sensitive areas with regards to known archaeology.


After an initial Masterplan was developed L – P then produced a preliminary Impact Assessment which sought consider the need for design, civil engineering and archaeological solutions to the constraints and opportunities identified.
