Our services include the following:
STRATEGIC Landscape Planning
At the outset of a project, we identify any sensitivities, opportunities and constraints from a landscape perspective, taking into consideration landscape designations, landscape policy, visual amenity and landscape character.
Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments
We undertake Landscape and Townscape Visual Impact Assessments (LVIA) at a range of scales, and have particular experience on complex sites in sensitive landscape designations.
Green Belt Reviews

This ensures that landscape and visual considerations form a key part of the design from the start, and aids our clients in making informed decisions within the evolution of the project.
