Residential Developments
The Howlett Consultancy provides the archaeological input that is required by developers of new settlements and other large-scale housing proposals. We also deal with the archaeology on sites of small groups of new dwellings

We are commissioned to manage the archaeological potential on all types of quarries and have a particular knowledge of issues relating to aggregate extraction

The land required for new and expanded transport routes is usually extensive and is likely to include areas with some archaeological potential

Historic Buildings
Alterations and extensions to 'listed buildings' and some other historic buildings normally require historical and archaeological surveys
City and Town Centre Regeneration
Many towns and cities have a long history of occupation and commercial activity which may be reflected in rich archaeological deposits. New building in urban areas frequently requires the archaeological and historic buildings experience provided by The Howlett Consultancy

Conservation Areas
The Howlett Consultancy has the expertise to undertake the historical research and assessment required by Local Authorities for their Conservation Area Appraisals

Historic Parks & Gardens
If proposed developments affect historic parks and gardens in English Heritage's Register, we are able to undertake the necessary research and negotiations
