Landscape Services

Landscape & Visual Impact Assessment

We are experienced in the production of Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments for a range of developments and take a proportional approach to the nature and scale of development.

Using the digital terrain modelling software, LSS Elite, we can provide a more thorough analysis of a study area enabling us to prepare several outputs including cross-sections, fly-throughs and Zone of Theoretical Visibility assessments to better suit your LVIA requirements.

We can also provide CGI visualisations which can be used to effectively demonstrate the impact of your developments to better support your planning application.

Landscape Design & Specification

We are experienced in the production of high quality landscape design and specification drawings for residential and commercial development schemes, and new public buildings.

Our intrinsic knowledge of landscape management and delivery means that our schemes are specifically designed to maximise visual amenity whilst ensuring cost-effective and sustainable management into the future.

Landscape Management Planning

Management of landscape resources is a core strength of our business and we are able to use this expertise to formulate high quality, sustainable strategies and plans for the ongoing management of all open space types.

Our fundamental understanding of the cost implications of landscape management means that our schemes are proportionate and deliverable, and result in an ongoing improvement in the quality and value of these resources.

Green Belt Appraisal

Assessment of development capacity in sites designated within greenbelt allocation, specific to national policy.

Masterplanning

Our team has broad experience in masterplanning for residential, commercial and industrial developments.  Our services include urban design, housing layouts and research and development of historic landscape management plans.

Natural Capital

For some years our specialists in this field have been researching the concept of natural capital and how best to and implement strategies for clients to improve site management and future environmental security.  Lockhart Garratt is rapidly becoming the market leader in this field.

Green Infrastructure Planning & Design

We are proud to have been one of the first consultancies to offer specific green infrastructure advice and, over a decade later, we are nationally recognised for our pioneering approach to its integration into the planning process.

Through the provision of tried and tested planning documentation (Supporting Statements, Environmental Statement chapters, design reviews, implementation strategies, etc.) we can support planning applications where green infrastructure consideration is required and/or desired.
