The Royal Borough of Greenwich have commenced another planning consultation on Areas of High Archaeological Potential (AHAPs). Largely uncontroversial the document does need a certain amount of time and thought. A brief look reveals a number of typographical errors and minor historical inaccuracies, which in the context of individual planning applications could have deleterious effects. There are individual maps of each AHAP so the file is a chunky 27mB to download.
In order to comment online you will have to register, but the document can be downloaded without registration. The consultation closes at 11.49am (odd, but that is what it says) on Wednesday 18 April 2012.
All of Deptford that lies within Greenwich's boundaries is classified as 'Greenwich AHAP No 1 Deptford'.
The document has been produced by English Heritage and was submitted to Greenwich Council for consideration and possible adoption as part of the evidence base to support the planning policies in the Council’s Core Strategy.
There are presently 30 areas of AHAPs within the borough with the proposal that two are deleted and three new areas are created representing a total of 1719.35 hectares or 34% of the borough.
