The service explained
We have extensive track record in assessing the impact of future development, whether rural or urban. Our multidisciplinary team includes experts that established some of the UK’s original assessment methodologies, and continues to take a pragmatic yet innovative approach.
Environmental Impact Assessment
We are specialists in undertaking Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), predicting and depicting change and seeking innovative solutions for our clients which deliver consent and protect the environment. Our diverse EIA work includes energy, mixed use and housing, transport, water and forestry projects, supported by our in-house GIS and visualisation team.
Landscape/Townscape & Visual Impact Assessment
We carry out robust and defensible landscape and visual impact assessments, working alongside the development of design proposals. We assess the likely effects of change on townscape character and visual amenity to support decision-makers on new developments.
Heritage Impact Assessment
We assess the impact of strategic policies, development options or local plan allocations on the historic environment, encompassing all types of designated and non-designated heritage assets. This can include using various spatial analysis techniques in collaboration with our GIS specialists. Our work assists local authorities with decision-making and policy formulation, establishing key issues and identifying preferred sites.
