I agree that this wording is very odd. As Dave says, it sounds like the old access condition, which we still have lurking in our list of standard conditions but which I never use. It also sounds as if the building is owned by the Local Authority, which is therefore the applicant, since the grammatical implication of the wording is that it is the Local Authority that has to provide access. Is this the case, Chris?

For those of you still at work on a Friday afternoon, the following condition has been attached to Listed Building consent (the ground beneath is Scheduled) issued by the Government Office for the South West on the advice of English Heritage. I think I understand what they might be trying to say but all interpretations welcome!
"Not withstanding the requirement of any associated Ancient Monument consent and prior to any works commencing, the applicant shall submit a programme of works in respect of extant structures, to the Local Planning Authority which shall provide for reasonable access at all times for a nominated archaeologist to observe and record items of interest or finds, uncovered as a result of the approved works.
REASON: To protect the architectural heritage of the County."
