Archaeology Strategy

Approved Planning Policies Banner

The Archaeology Strategy provides detailed guidance on protecting and managing the City's archaeological resource and gives further advice to developers on the archaeological implications of development schemes.

It explains the practical application of government advice and our own policies, particularly in the light of recent cases which have demonstrated the quality of the City's archaeological remains and how they can be properly protected and managed without preventing or discouraging the regeneration which is essential to Birmingham's future. The Strategy sets out what we require from potential developers to achieve this, and our role in the process.

The Strategy was adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance in December 2003.

Document Status : Statutory Policy Document - Adopted December 2003
