EHG5616 - DBA and walkover survey - proposed Kirkan Wind Farm



RSK Environment Ltd


July 2018


A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were undertaken by RSK Environmental in 2018 in advance of the proposed construction of the Kirkan Wind Farm to inform an environmental statement. Each plot where the proposed development infrastructure might be located was visited and walked systematically. Notes were taken on topography, land use, field boundaries, the condition of any previously recorded heritage assets, and previously unrecorded archaeological features. The position of any identified sites or features were logged, with photographic evidence taken alongside written records. Previously unidentified sites were marked by GPS points to confirm their location to an accuracy of ±1 m. In addition to the project area, site visits were also made on 18th and 19th July 2018 to designated heritage assets identified within the overlap between the ZTV and Study Area B. Site visits were made to provide a baseline description of significance and an assessment of the contribution of setting to significance. <1>
