Visual Impact Assessment

Visual Impact Assessment

Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, to give it's full title, often forms part of the wider Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
which is a statutory part of the planning process.

Although this not an essential requirement for each and every planning application, the Local Authority Planning Department
may request that a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) is submitted in some cases.

When the Local Authority requires a LVIA to support an application, there are comprehensive guidelines regarding the equipment
and methods employed in order to ensure that the images produced are of the required standard and that everything within the
process is accurate and that this accuracy can be verified.

This work may also be referred to as Accurate Visual Representation (AVR). Regardless of the term used to describe it,
the process itself is very much the same & must be carried out in accordance with the correct guidelines.

Our team have considerable experience in this area we are happy to provide Verified View Photomontage
(CGI matched into a photograph) to any clients who find they need it.

Professional photography and survey information are used to ensure accuracy in the set up of the 3d environment to exactly match the real world.
Final images are supplied with a method statement to support the process employed and provide the necessary verification.
