What is Landscape Assessment LVIA?

Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment LVIA is a tool used to help understand the significance of how development affects and changes the landscape, people's views and visual amenity.

Landscape character and visibility are assessed to inform plans and decision making and often undertaken to support a planning application.

LVIA : Landscape Visual Assessment Explained

What is Landscape and Visual Assessment? How do I commission a Landscape and Visual Appraisal? Has your planning application been refused on Landscape Grounds? Have you got other LVIA questions?

Landscape Assessment can help support your planning application and can be simpler than you think if undertaken correctly!

When is LVIA Carried out?

We undertake Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment either formally as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment EIA for certain projects, or informally as an appraisal of development proposals and planning applications.

Sometimes LVIA is requested by the planning authority where the impact of a proposed development is unclear, or you may wish to submit a landscape appraisal to help explain the significance of your development and reduce landscape or visual concerns.
