Middlesbrough Council to Cut Archaeology Funding
Submitted by Gill Chitty on Fri, 2011-10-07 on the CBA website

Tees Archaeology is at risk of new cuts ? respond to the consultation

Middlesbrough Council plans to withdraw its funding for Tees Archaeology. This is one of a number of local councils that are threatening to opt out of providing archaeology services. The CBA wants to make them think again about what they will be losing.

We are also asking how the Council proposes to meet its obligations as a planning authority to have access to archaeological information in an Historic Environment Record and to have expert advice to inform its planning decisions, in line with national planning policy in PPS5.

Middlesbrough Council has now started a 6-week consultation period on its proposed budget cuts. The consultation period runs to 18 November.

The CBA is asking its members to respond to the consultation and contact Middlesbrough Council to express their support for the important work that Tees Archaeology does and the enormous value that the Council?s modest investment in the service provides. It creates opportunities for local people to be involved with their heritage, contributes to enhancement of neighbourhoods and levers in significant amounts of developer funding to the local economy.

There is more information about why local authorities need archaeology advisers available from the Conservation news page.
