WHAT ARE LANDSCAPE AND VISUAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS?Landscape and visual impact assessments (LVIA) are often required as part of the statutory planning process to clearly set out and explain the effects of a development upon the existing landscape and the appearance of such changes in terms of effects on visual amenity. In many cases this process can greatly assist in achieving environmentally sensitive development.
LVIA can be key to planning decisions by identifying the effects of new developments on views and on the landscape itself. Some developments can have visual effects but none on landscape character and some vice versa. A depth of analysis and understanding of these two interrelated aspects is required to produce a successful LVIA.
