Vian Homes Ltd obtained planning permission (PA/056903/09) to develop a site off Buckstones Road in Shaw, Oldham (centred on NGR SD 9486 0986). The development proposals allowed for the erection of seven new dwellings, necessitating some earth-moving works.
In order to secure archaeological interests, Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council (OMBC) placed a condition on the planning permission, which required a programme of archaeological investigation to be carried out in advance of development. Following consultation with the Assistant County Archaeologist for Greater Manchester, it was recommended that an appropriate programme of investigation would in the first instance comprise background documentary research coupled with targeted evaluation trenching.
