Ecclestone Homes have applied for planning permission to develop 158 homes on the site at Bourne Hill in Thornton.
Planning permission is soon to be granted subject to a number of conditions. One of those is to conduct an archaeological survey and this is currently underway.
So far, excavation works completed by a team of archaeologists from Oxford Archaeology North (OAN) has revealed findings of interest. Following the completion of the fieldwork on the site, OAN will produce a post excavation assessment report.
This report will be submitted to the council before we can agree the next steps.
