Archaeological Dig

& Pond Clearance

DPS were to undertake an Archaeological Dig at the site at East Gardens in Ditchling to satisfy a pre commencement condition as it was believed there may be a roman road that travels through the land. No roman road was found and the condition was approved.

The pond on site had to be cleared and drained as part of the ecological enhancements to comply with ECO4 (Code for sustainable homes) as part of the CODE 6 application. A new pond is to be placed within the site of the same size.
