Environmental Impact Assessments
Riverside Business Park 2012 Rotherham Biomass Plant 2013 Sevenoaks School 2014
RIVERSIDE BUSINESS PARK Location: Bakewell Client: Litton Properties The practice provided Landscape character and visual impact assessment for a proposed mixed use light industrial, residential and office development on the 5 hectare site. The Riverside Business Park sits on the river Wye to the western edge of Bakewell, Derbyshire and is within the Peak District National Park. The historic mill site is partly bounded by a Scheduled Monument, the water management and structures associated with Lumsford Mill. These include a submerged weir, a millstream, millpond, mill-race, dam wall and tail race. The assessment evaluates the potential for significant environmental effects of the application proposals on the existing landscape character and quality, identifying any visual intrusion, effects on skyline (height of proposed buildings) and key views, including views from important public routes and places. The valley setting provided strong topography and a range of close and distance views requiring assessment. The planning application received permission.
