Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments

We undertake Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIA) and Townscape and Visual Impact Assessment (TVIA) as a specialist service, helping our clients understand a site's sensitivities and allow us to collaborate with designers to adapt development proposals to complement their setting.

We have extensive experience of carrying out LVIAs and TVIAs in accordance with the latest best practice guidance prepared by the Landscape Institute and IEMA. We have expertise in a broad range of urban and rural 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 40 years.

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

  • The quality of our Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment work, which also includes townscapes, seascapes and strategic assessment is based on our indepth experience. Our abillity to work proportionately and to tailor our outputs to the needs of each project is appreciated by our clients.


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 or Townscape 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 to working for a development consortium on a major urban extension scheme. We will give you our complete focus 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.
