TEP prepares landscape and visual assessments to a range of clients for EIA and non-EIA developments. Our LVIA are prepared to a method which is guided by the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, Third Edition (GLVIA 3). Our projects are diverse and include infrastructure and renewable energy development, residential and mixed-use schemes and regeneration and leisure developments. Our LVIA specialists work with developers to achieve the best solution and TEP's in-house design team to prepare landscape mitigation schemes, visualisations, verified photomontages and Zone of Theoretical Visibility mapping.
We also undertake landscape character assessments (LCA), sensitivity and capacity assessments, and the assessment of development site allocations for local authorities. Clear communication and good presentation of results are required. Our work may lead to presentation of our assessments as evidence at public inquiry and our work may become important parts of the Local Plan evidence base.
Due to several exciting new projects and a long-term workstream we are recruiting landscape architects with experience in landscape and visual assessment. If you would like to work in a forward-thinking, friendly team who care about the environment please get in touch. We offer diverse project work, a great work-life balance, training opportunities and an excellent overall employment package. The Role and Requirements
