Archaeology & planning
The Archaeology Service works with the
Development Services of Falkirk Council to provide advice, information and
excavation services to avoid the destruction of sites by modern development without
any record. Where possible the archaeology is left intact – either by carefully
placing buildings and utility services to to prevent the permanent loss of archaeological
evidence through modern development.
Developers should consult the Archaeology Service at an early stage in the work
to discuss potential problems and mitigation methods.
