Tomorrow’s Landscapes Today

Our chartered team provides expert landscape planning advice. We do it all and everything in between. Site appraisals, community engagement and Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments.

Understanding landscape planning issues is an essential component of the planning process. L|B offers commercial solutions. We respond to site specific circumstances. Ensuring compliance with national and local planning policy. All the while maintaining the aspirations of our clients.

Landscape Appraisal

Where formal assessment is not required at early project stages or where schemes are considered to be uncontroversial. L|B can provide ‘made to measure’ appraisals to suit almost any budget. These can be as simple as a rapid turn-around desk based assessment. We can provide you up-front advice on potential development opportunities.

In the context of both outline and detailed planning applications, L|B offers full, formal landscape and visual impact assessments (LVIA). LVIAs inform the development of scheme proposals and support their submission. We liaise with local authority landscape officers to agree appropriate and robust assessment methodologies. All of our work is undertaken in line with current best practice guidance. Environmental Statement chapters can be produced as part of a full Environmental Statement.
