Brindle & Green has a team of qualified landscape consultants who specialise in the delivery of LVIA and landscape design.

Landscape Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA)

Timing: Year round

 

LVIA are either required as a formal addition to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), or as an appraisal of development proposals in support of a standard planning application where the views of the site, locality or landscape could be affected by the proposals. A well prepared LVIA can identify the potential effects to notable receptors; allowing guidance and mitigation to be prepared to minimise or prevent degradation to the local landscape character.

Brindle and Green have experience in preparing professional reports for small scale development in a sensitive area (such as an area of High Landscape Value, or an area of particular urban character), and larger multi-phase residential and industrial development, and can advise you on offsetting significant adverse effects, or providing mitigation advice to reduce and prevent potential impacts. Each report is detailed; following updated GLVIA3 guidance to provide in depth Landscape Character Assessment, Viewpoint Mapping, Statutory designated sites Assessment (Such as SSSI, BAP, SPA or LNR) to inform the Zone of Theoretical Visibility (ZTV) providing an assessment unique to your project specification.
