HeritageRisk.co.uk…a new heritage map interface online
MOLA and FIND Mapping Ltd today launch a new map interface for Great Britain. The online, smart-phone and tablet-friendly service offers planners, developers and surveyors the opportunity to order bespoke heritage and archaeology risk-assessment reports by simply selecting the area of a site on a map interface.
Bespoke site-assessment reports outline the potential impact on historic buildings, archaeological remains and conservation areas of proposed developments. The service is designed for anyone wanting to know what heritage issues there may be on a specific site. In particular, the service offers vital early-stage insight into risks that may impact on the success of a development.
By using HeritageRisk, users remove the time-consuming process of communicating complex site boundaries and details over the phone or by email. The ease of use makes this the only heritage-assessment service of its kind.
HeritageRisk reports are available in two formats:
- A ‘rapid’, high-level site assessment that identifies significant archaeological and built-heritage risks at the pre-planning stage of development; and
- A ‘detailed’ report that provides more extensive information to help to identify key archaeological and built-heritage risks or opportunities for a site, and that outlines the work likely to be required as part of a planning consent.
HeritageRisk reports start from £320, and include the full range of historical maps from Ordnance Survey going back to 1890. For more information, click here.
