In my experience with project approvals, heritage regulators are some of the most difficult people to deal with. No common sense.So it's been hooked because of what they may, or may not find ?
If they were to uncover any artifacts they could at least preserve them and display them on site.
Doesn't make sense to me.
I remember a guy almost crying once when I presented a development proposal. He couldn’t comment on how to help preserve the heritage values, all he could say in his whiny little voice was “but it’s heritage…it’s really important!!!”.
Yeah, we know that dickhead.
