Keynsham Greenways Project

PK13/3020/R3F | Reconstruction of existing path and creation of new zig zag ramp to link the towpath to the Ring Road Cycle Track. | Ferry Road Hanham Bristol South Gloucestershire BS15 3NT

The proposed works are in an area where there are approximately 6 entries in the South Glos HER referring to archaeological sites, including an 18th century water works and artefact scatters from bronze age to post medieval. The works are to be constructed on the remains of quarrying activity. There is no archaeological assessment report. Therefore the potential impact of the proposed works on the historic environment can not be assessed. We object to the application due to failure to consider potential loss of archaeological evidence caused by the works. We recommend a full archaeological assessment be submitted prior to consideration of the application, and if planning permission is granted and there is potential for archaeological finds, then appropriate conditions be placed to ensure and finds are recorded or preserved. Withdrawn The planners report prior to site visit by councillors cited one concern was lack of archaeology assessment Application details
