Client: Wiltshire County Council
We carry out Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) for a range of clients, including developers, commercial landlords local authorities and public sector clients. The LVIA process aims to provide an objective assessment of the effect of new developments. The landscape element takes into account the sensitivity of the local landscape and the effect of changes on character and quality of landscape. Visual assessment considers the effect of the proposals on people in the landscape – whether they be walking, at home or working.
The site at Amesbury are in a large scale, open landscape just outside the Stonehenge World Heritage Site. The proposals were for a large industrial building in a rural area. Our work involved identifying viewpoints, carrying out visual assessments and preparing a mitigation strategy for the proposals.
