Landward Research has undertaken a rapid survey of ALGAO members to find out how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the work of archaeological advisors to local government across the UK.
The overwhelming majority of ALGAO members have been able to continue to deliver services as they were able to do before the onset of the pandemic. This means that the availability of local government advice has not been a factor leading to a reduction in archaeological work.
The majority (c.70%) of ALGAO members have continued to provide planning advice, policy advice, to comment on active developments and to provide Historic Environment Record services.
