Abstract

Lancaster University was granted planning permission in 2011 for the installation of a 2MW wind turbine generator, with associated site access, on-site access tracks, hardstanding areas, temporary construction and storage compound, cabling, and landscaping and environmental measures (planning ref 10/01061/FUL), on land on the east side of the M6 motorway, opposite to the University’s South West Campus, off Bailrigg Lane, Lancaster (centred on NGR SD 4904 5742). Following a period of consultation, on behalf of the client, with the Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS), it was agreed that the areas of groundworks be subject to a programme of archaeological investigation prior to any construction works commencing on site. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertook an archaeological desk-based assessment and technical chapter for the purposes of an Environmental Statement, to accompany the planning application, in December 2009 and April 2010, respectively, the aim being to inform the planning process as to the potential impact of the proposals on any cultural heritage resources. The technical chapter was also informed by a magnetic gradiometer survey over the site. Originally, the application was for two turbine generators, but was revised for a single turbine generator later in 2010, when OA North’s input into the Environmental Statement was accordingly revised, in September 2010.
