We safeguard the environment and promoting best practice. Our ability to assess landscape and visual impact, are vital in identifying opportunities and developing new landscape strategies. Our approach is critical in ensuring sustainable development within Essex and our award winning work on the 'Landscape Assessment for the Essex Coast’ is a great example of this influence.
We provide advice on landscape planning and landscape assessment. Working closely with planners we provide advice on development control, planning policy and the development of the minerals and waste plans for the county.
