Guidance Note: The Provision of Archaeological Information and Advice in Scotland to meet the UKFS
This document outlines the type of archaeological survey which may be required to meet the UK Forestry Standard Forests and Historic Environment guidelines.
Following the UKFS Forests and Historic Environment guidelines, historic environment features and sites of special cultural significance should be identified and appropriate measures taken to protect them. Where relevant, a professional archaeological walkover survey may be required to inform decisions and provide baseline evidence (particularly in advance of a new woodland creation). Issues raised during this process shall be considered and evidenced within the Forest Plan.
