Since 1990 PPG 16 has required planners to consider archaeology as a material consideration in determining applications for new development. As a result, numerous archaeological organisations undertake mitigation work in advance of (or during) construction work in archaeologically sensitive areas.
Archaeologically Sensitive Areas are designated by the Council so that developers can be aware of extensive archaeological interests at an early stage and take account of them in their proposals for land use change. They cover both urban and rural areas of Dumfries and Galloway where a concentration of archaeological interest, or potential interest, covers large areas, or heritage features are the basis for visitor attractions.
