Information about areas of high archaeological potential in Surrey Heath.

Surrey County Council has identified a number of Areas of High Archaeological Potential within Surrey Heath.

Within these areas there is good reason to expect significant finds during any disturbance of the ground.

They may be required to submit a desk based assessment to accompany any application submitted.
