A planning application (ref 06/2013/0131) was submitted by Portergate Developments (Preston) Ltd, for the demolition of existing shop buildings 101 to 110 Friargate, Preston, Lancashire (NGR SD 53621 29741). Following demolition, the proposals included the erection of a range of multi-storey buildings along Friargate and on land to the rear. A heritage assessment, carried out in 2013 by Archaeological Services Durham University (ASDU), identified a number of potential heritage assets in the proposed development area that may be affected by the demolition and subsequent development. In consultation with Lancashire County Archaeological Service (LCAS), Preston City Council granted planning permission for the development subject to a number of conditions including the completion of a programme of archaeological evaluation and building recording. In response, Portergate Developments (Preston) Ltd commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to carry out the work in accordance with a written scheme of investigation (WSI) issued by ASDU (RA13.206 and RA13.207). Following a site visit by OA North and in agreement with LCAS, the scope of work specified by ASDU was amended due to various site constraints and concerns with both the remaining upstanding buildings and nature of the cleared land behind the buildings. OA North subsequently produced updated project designs for both the building recording and the implementation of a programme of strip, map and sample, which replaced both of the WSIs issued by ASDU.
