Landscape, seascape and visual impact assessments
Our method is in line with good practice including the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment Edition 3 (GLVIA 3) and other relevant guidance.
Our assessments are supported by appropriate visualisations , such as photomontages (see Raglan livestock market pictured).

Project case studies
A major element of our work is supporting planning authorities by checking if developer’s LVIAs or SVIAs use good practice, are accurate, comprehensive and arrive at reasonable conclusions which can be relied upon by decision makers. If not, we offer an objective alternative and assist in liaising with developers.
Development types we have assessed include housing, high rise developments, wind and solar energy, roads, livestock markets and lifeboat stations in sensitive coastal locations.
Our landscape, seascape and visual impact assessments are complemented by high quality photomontages, wirelines and zones of theoretical visibility [ZTVs] to the latest guidance. These are complemented by other GIS tools to demonstrate effects.
