An archaeological evaluation was carried out at an application site adjacent to two prehistoric burial monuments (TYR036–026, 032) in an effort to inform the planning service of the presence and survival of archaeological remains that would be adversely affected by development. A total of three trenches (one encompassing the footprint of the proposed structure and two along the line of the access route) were mechanically excavated to the surface of the natural subsoil, with nothing of archaeological significance being observed during the evaluation.
