We were commissioned to provide landscape consultancy services for a Highways Agency DMRB Stage 1 and Stage 2 level assessment associated with the A30 Honiton to Devonshire Inn improvement.

We initially carried out detailed landscape character and visual assessments to inform the identification and consideration of potential route improvement options. Incorporating road improvements was particularly challenging given the highly sensitive landscape context of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The engineering scheme design was informed by an understanding of key landscape and visual constraints and opportunities and consideration of other factors, including heritage, ecology, agriculture, noise and socio-economics. This resulted in a coordinated and responsive environmental design.

We were involved in consultation and prepared the landscape and visual chapter for the project environmental assessment report and WebTAG assessments. The preferred option received Devon County Council Cabinet approval.
