Port Development & the Historic Environment in England

Starts: Tuesday, 21st March 2017 - 9.00am

Ends: Tuesday, 21st March 2017 - 5.00pm

Location: University of Leicester

About this event

This one day course will detail how risk is addressed by port development projects when assessing how the historic environment might be encountered whether in the sea and within its terrestrial estate.  To do this the course will focus on identifying the risks to ports by examining how elements of the historic environment might be affected during capital projects and during longer term maintenance programmes and how mitigation strategies can be identified and agreed.

The course will provide professional training to national and local curators, the ports’ industry and engineering/environmental consultants that support project preparation and delivery.  There will be opportunities to explore and discuss how ports and harbours prepare future development programmes with representatives from the ports’ sector, a maritime navigation authority and consultants as a means to promote better communication between all parties.  The course will therefore enable wider understanding of the procedures under which archaeological and historic assessment exercises are conducted and risks managed throughout the operational area of working ports.
