Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments

We undertake Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIA) as an integral part of our work within an award-winning, multidisciplinary consultancy.

We have extensive experience of carrying out LVIAs in accordance with the latest best practice guidance prepared by the Landscape Institute and IEMA. We have expertise in a broad range of locations, including within designated landscapes such as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Expertise you can rely on

  • Our reputation for quality of service has been established over a period of more than 35 years.

    We are a Landscape Institute Registered Practice, with a team of Licentiate and Chartered Landscape Architects.

  • We are also IEMA EIA Quality Mark scheme members in recognition of the quality of our Environmental Impact Assessment work, which includes Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment.

    The quality of our work is also recognised by our clients who see us as an integral part of their project planning, assessment and design team.

Working together to deliver success

We take a collaborative approach to working on projects at all stages of the planning and design process, at all scales and across a broad range of sectors.

We work best when we can work with architects, engineers and other specialists to develop creative solutions that embed mitigation identified through the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment process into high-quality environmental designs.

We are as committed to working for private clients on individual properties as we are working for a development consortium on a major urban extension scheme. We will give you our complete attention and support, providing attention to detail and an understanding of your commercial needs.

We are committed to delivering high-quality, proportionate, outputs for all our clients in the form of reports, drawings and other graphics. We utilise our skills in graphics packages, CAD, GIS and 3d visualisation software to meet your requirements. We can provide a standalone report to support your planning application or prepare a chapter of an Environmental Statement.
