Guidelines for landscape and visual impact assessment 3rd edition


At Thomson we are able to undertake both informal landscape appraisals and formal Landscape Visual Impact Assessments, either as a standalone study or as part of a larger Environmental Statement. We understand that the LVIA process can be crucial to planning consents and the integrity of a scheme, and so ensure that we adhere to industry standard guidance currently the 3rd edition of Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and collaborate with those experienced within the field to ensure the highest possible quality of work. Depending on the nature of the site, it may be that visual impacts, landscape impacts, or both, need to be considered, but whatever the situation, we will work with our GIS team to undertake desk studies and field work to ensure that the proper processes result in a thorough analysis of the site, its sensitivity and the potential effects of development on it, as well as the potential for mitigating any negative effects that may occur.

This international perspective should remind us of the value of LVIA, and how fortunate we are in the UK to have a framework within which to assess landscape and visual impact. It was written in response to the serious erosion of the character and quality of our urban and rural landscapes that occurred in the latter part of the 20th century, and recognised a need to safeguard the quality of the environment for future generations. The first edition of GLVIA recognised that landscape and visual impact assessment relies less upon measurement, and more upon experience and judgement, than some other EIA topics. For this reason the guidelines aimed to present a structured and consistent approach to the treatment of landscape and visual issues. Instead, it put the onus on the landscape professional carrying out the assessment to ensure the approach and methodology adopted was appropriate. The guidance also included a number of case studies to provide examples of then current practice.

'For any self-respecting landscape consultant, Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment [first edition] is an essential reference book.

IA Outlook Journal Volume 11: Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment

Over the last twenty years, Laura and Jonathan have worked in the landscape and visual impact assessment process, often in collaboration with other professionals in the fields of engineering, ecology and cultural heritage. The process of landscape and visual impact assessment is an important tool for the identification and balance of both potential significant adverse impacts and potential benefits a development may bring to its landscape setting and the views and visual amenity of people in that landscape. Furthermore, landscape mitigation works can be designed, in discussion with the client, with the aim of reducing adverse impacts to a satisfactory level. Landscape and visual impact assessment experience for a wide range of developments include:. Residential development sites throughout the UK. Road improvements and new road planning schemes for all stages of the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges in Scotland and England. Hard rock quarrying in central Scotland.

and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment have produced Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (3rd edition, ).

Our expertise covers a range of sectors, including residential, education, mixed-use commercial and industrial schemes; renewable energy, infrastructure and flood attenuation. We value undertaking LVIA as an iterative process as a valued member of the design team, with scope to shape the masterplan and landscape strategy for a site in a meaningful way. The advantage is that key considerations and constraints for site planning are well understood early in the design process. The LVIA process positively contributes to site planning by avoiding the most sensitive and valuable resources and reducing any other adverse effects to an acceptable level to achieve the best outcome for the landscape.

We have undertaken Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments as part of Environmental Impact Assessments and as part of informal appraisals, that have been requested for planning applications. The scope of these studies are as agreed with the Local Planning Authorities through consultation, including a formal scoping process where studies form part of an EIA.

LVIA is used to help design the proposed change as well as assess its effects, so that negative landscape effects are avoided, reduced or offset. Where a development is likely to have negative impacts on landscape, LVIA usually forms part of the environmental assessment. It can also be used as part of the appraisal of development proposals and planning applications. Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment 3rd edition is the standard methodology. All relevant professional institutes recommend it as good practice.

It will never fail you. We can undertake an initial visit to ascertain the exact extent of a sites environmental potential and identify important features which should be retained. This could, if required include an ecological appraisal to survey existing habitats and identify any further investigations that may be required before a planning application could be submitted.
