Archaeological impact assessment at Killough, Co. Tipperary
Dr. Charles Mount prepared the Archaeological Impact Assessment (AIA0 of a quarry development at Killough, Co. Tipperary. Where the extent of a development is considered to be under the threshold that would require an Environmental Impact Assessment the Planning Authority may require an Archaeological Impact Assessment. An AIA will often consist of a Desk-based assessment combined with a site visit. In some cases the impact of the development on surrounding monuments may be an issue as in the case of this example from Co. Tipperary. In this case a well preserved Tower House situated close to the development was screened by a belt of woodland.
