Landscape and Visual Assessment


DRaW specialise in Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) to accompany planning applications, either as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) or as a standalone assessment for non EIA developments.

We provide consistent, reliable and authoritative advice on the physical, visual and aesthetic effects of new developments using robust methodologies supported by high quality visualisations to accurately predict the effects and significance of the proposed development.

Our Chartered team of professionals have in-depth knowledge of the current guidance in relation to landscape and visual assessment, photography and visualisations. Our assessments are robust and well respected within the industry.

We have undertaken assessments and provided Expert Witness services for a wide range of developments throughout the UK and overseas.  Projects include major residential settlement, industrial and commercial sites, wind farms, minerals and wastes sites, energy projects and major infrastructure schemes for public and private sector clients.
