Today, everybody could be dealing with archaeological heritage management, often when one applies to the local authority for an environmental permit. In addition to knowledge about laws, regulations and policies, specialist knowledge plays a part in the consideration of a fitting implementation of this duty of care. D7 archaeology has extensive experience in this area of expertise, due to advising governments and authorities as well as private persons and companies.
I offer solicited and unsolicited advice to the municipalities of Berg en Dal, Beuningen and Heumen, and am a back-up for the municipality archaeologist of Druten and Wijchen. My work consists of advice on policies, also regarding the upcoming Environmental Law, and to carry out lawfully required tasks, such as the weighing of archaeology in new spatial plans and the assessment of reports as part of zoning plan changes and requests for building- and planning permissions. I am in contact with the province, municipal and regional archaeologists, our State Cultural Heritage Service and the executing archaeological companies. The municipalities strive towards a better maintenance and understanding of archaeological values in the region. This is being met by setting up activities for the general public, such as the development of informative and educational material, and the organization of exhibitions.More archaeological advice
