Landscape and Visual Sensitivity Assessment

    We created a detailed brief and tender process for the Landscape and Visual Sensitivity Assessment for Shropshire Council. We also provided advice and support at each stage of the Assessment, both to the Council and to the winning tender consultant, Gillespies. The Assessment was the winner of the 2019 Landscape Institute Awards, as one of the first county-wide sensitivity studies to undertake separate landscape and visual assessments, and the criteria used in the study, as defined by ESP Ltd, was one of the examples referenced in the latest Natural England Guidance – An approach to landscape sensitivity assessment – to inform spatial planning and land management, published in June 2019.  “Thank you so much for your help with the Landscape and Visual Sensitivity Study. It’s been invaluable and I really appreciate the excellent support you’ve given us throughout the whole process. It’s been a pleasure working with you.” Joy Tetshill, Senior Planning Officer, Shropshire Council.
