The preparation of a disturbance plan was a recommendation of the CMP, and it will form part of the package of information provided to those making development proposals. Predictive archaeological analysis — from archival sources and physical evidence — has been used to identify the areas of the site and its environs that are of potential archaeological interest, categorising them as of high, moderate or low sensitivity. The plan includes direction concerning obligations under the Heritage Act to implement the recommendations outlined.
The sub-surface remains at Canberra Brickworks have the potential to help in the understanding of the use and operation of the site over time. A particular focus is the presence of residential quarters and workers’ camps. Pre-contact archaeology is the subject of a separate report by others.
