Building Reports & Recording

Planning permission may contain the condition that an archaeological survey is made.
Levels of detail will depend on: 

  • The importance of the building - the extent of the proposed ‘intervention’ - the degree of detail required. The Planning Officer will take all these into consideration.

  • Recording and comprehension are now commonly confused. The conditions of planning permission usually stipulate an overall understanding of the building.

  • To this end, AA makes full use of existing architectural surveys. If required, point cloud data capture and other methods can be arranged, but the emphasis is on traditional use of grey matter on the spot – rather than ‘kicking the can down the road’ with technological overkill!

  • Where no planning officer is involved, you are free to have your property recorded exactly as you choose – even as a watercolour!
