Our senior staff are all experienced in undertaking LVIAs in accordance with best practice, the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment 3rd Edition (GLVIA3 – the Landscape Institute and IEMA). 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 present our findings using a combination of narrative, summary tables and diagrams to form legible, concise reports that follow a transparent methodology in accordance with GLVIA3. We work with a team of graphics specialists to provide high quality visualisations and verified views in accordance with the Guidelines.
JSA have undertaken recent LVIAs for the following projects:
Chalfont Grammar School LVIA – an assessment of proposals for a secondary school newbuild on the edge of Greenbelt land in Buckinghamshire.
North Marsh LVIA – Assessment of the impact of a new changing room facility on the visually sensitive areas of Hackney Marshes and gained planning consent following a public inquiry.
