Presenting information on landscape and visual effects
This chapter provides information on presentation techniques that may be used to communicate the results of landscape and visual assessments. The same broad principles apply where LVIA is carried out as:
part of an EIA, and presented in a similar way to other environmental topics – landscape and visual effects usually appear either as separate or combined sections of the Environmental Statement;
a standalone ‘appraisal’ presented as a separate report to accompany a planning application – this will contain the same type of information as for an EIA but at a level of detail which is appropriate to the scale and nature of the proposed development.
