Landscape Planning Services
ESP believes in a partnership approach to planning and designing sustainable landscapes. We work together with our clients, design teams
and authorities to create solutions that add value to the development, the environment and wider society.
ESP has gained considerable experience in the planning and implementation of minerals, waste management and other large scale rural developments since the Company’s inception in 2004, working with a wide range of mineral types across Britain. Our range of services include: preparation of feasibility studies where landscape issues are a particular constraint; design of volumetrically balanced working and restoration schemes using digital terrain modelling; landscape and visual impact assessment; landscape and ecological management plans and restoration audits.
Our philosophy is that landscapes are dynamic palimpsests, where character and sense of place must be respected, but where it is possible to improve biodiversity and green infrastructure. We see well-planned mineral developments that inevitably change the landscape as potential opportunities to stimulate landscape regeneration, particularly where the existing setting has been degraded by intensive farming.
