The purpose of this Project Design is to present an archaeological strategy in support of proposals for the construction of a residential development at Derwent Road Playing Fields, Osbaldwick Lane, York. The Project Design has been prepared by Humber Field Archaeology for Harron Homes (Yorkshire) Ltd, in response to the archaeological scheme of investigation issued by the City of York Council on 23rd May 2007. The document sets out the methodology for evaluating five trenches in the locations indicated on the attached plan. A programme for the on- and off-site works is included; clients are advised that construction site works should not commence until the archaeological area has been 'signed off' by the LPA's archaeological advisor, and a suitable mitigation strategy has been approved.
