The purpose of evaluation was to determine the survival and spread of WWII Prisoner of War Camp 85 Victoria located in the footprint of the proposed development. The evaluation found that the majority of the camp has been demolished but foundation trenches and postholes survived throughout the development area. Truncated remains of a prehistoric field system were encountered, with two ditches recorded within Trench 7, and there is potential for further survival of prehistoric features elsewhere. located in the footprint of the proposed development.
