There is now a petition, Save Lancashire’s Archaeology from Cuts. If you wish to know more or to sign CLICK HERE.
The truly shocking cuts to services at Lancashire County Council are slowly becoming known. But one cut that seems to be under the radar is the closure of the County Archaeology Service and the Historic Environment Record at the end of March. This means that the Historic Environment Record Officer post will go and there will be no archaeology planning work, therefore allowing the loss of protection for Lancashire’s archaeology in the planning system and its unrecorded destruction.
