The Service's Policies and Procedures provide the framework for its relationship with a wide range of stakeholders: other local government officers, developers and archaeological contractors, English Heritage and other national and regional agencies, local societies and other voluntary organisations as well as the wider public. Policies are subject to the approval of the Archives, Archaeology and Trading Standards sub-Committee of the West Yorkshire Joint Services Committee. Once approved, they will be published via this web page.
The Service's advisory role can have a significant impact on owners and developers of historic landscapes, sites and buildings, particularly in the context of the planning process. It is important, therefore, that those affected should have access to the knowledge and understanding that informs the advice given in particular cases, and that shapes any subsequent specification for archaeological recording work. The Service is therefore developing a series of research agenda documents against which its casework advice can be measured. These again will be subject to the approval of the Archives, Archaeology and Trading Standards sub-Committee, and once approved will be published via this web page. They will be updated at regular intervals to take account of new discoveries.
