In the built environment new development proposals will change the landscape and the way people see the landscape. Park Hood have a specific department dedicated to the preparation of Landscape and Visual Statements that is based on up-to-date knowledge of UK and Irish planning and environmental legislation. We have extensive experience in planning appeals at both formal and informal planning enquiries with a specific remit for landscape and visual evidence. This work varies from large scale Commercial developments such as shopping centres and retail parks , new housing and it’s infrastructure to Wind farms, single turbines, solar farms, quarry reclamation and Hydro power.

Park Hood are regularly engaged to advise on best practice in terms of addressing and planning conditions directing how these can be undertaken and managing this process to successful conclusions.
