Findings of Site Inspection: 

the site is currently open. a previous structure was built on the property but has been subsequently demolished. small scale scatter of archaeological shell was observed over the site. it is likely that the more sensitive areas are tot he rear of the property away from the beach. it is likely that archaeological material will be encountered when the earth works are started on the site.
