Minerals

Identifying, analysing and selecting suitable sites for minerals and waste projects demands a broad skills base and considerable expertise. LUC has a long-established reputation in landscape feasibility, as well as landscape and visual impact assessment for a variety of mineral and extraction projects. Our involvement covers the entire project lifecycle, from environmental considerations during site [...]

Green Belt Reviews

The need for up-to-date local plans, combined with the housing growth agenda and government reinforcement of Green Belt policy, means local authorities are actively reviewing their green belts. Our involvement in Green Belt policy development and review is unparalleled. In 1993 we undertook a Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) study for the London [...]

Waste Planning

Proper planning for waste management With demanding targets for recycling, reduced capacity for landfill, changes in national policy and near-inevitable local opposition to waste disposal sites, waste planning is a logistically and diplomatically challenging task for local authorities. We’ve been retained by a number of waste planning authorities to estimate future waste capacity requirements, identify [...]

Visibility and Shadow Flicker Assessment

Demonstrating exactly how visible your development will be. Our digital designers use visibility mapping tools such as ESRI Spatial and 3D Analyst to support a range of projects, from renewable energy and infrastructure schemes to heritage setting assessments. Generating zones of theoretical visibility (ZTV) to demonstrate a development’s potential visibility is fundamental to offshore seascape [...]

GIS mapping and data analysis

Using data to make better decisions. Mapping, underpinned by geographic information systems (GIS), is an integral part of most of our work. Our maps communicate complex data clearly and effectively, are extremely accurate and feature a professional cartographic finish. Our GIS mapping and analysis specialists all have environmental backgrounds, a blend of skills that means [...]

Photomontage and Photography

Photorealistic 3D visualisations of any development proposal you can plan for. The level of detail you require for the visual representation of your site and proposed development depends upon the purpose. We can cater for every need. Our 3D team achieves remarkable accuracy across the full range of visualisation: a simple wireframe image to indicate [...]

Interactive Mapping

Your entire area on your desktop or smartphone. An interactive map allows you or your audience to explore geographic data in a meaningful and effective way. We draw on open source technology and Mappetizer software to create fully functional online maps that people really enjoy using. Using interactive features in web-based GIS maps mean that [...]

3D Modelling and Animation

See your landscapes and proposals from every angle Our 3D specialists use industry-leading 3D modelling software to model 3D environments and create animations. The results can take the shape of anything from walk-throughs or fly-throughs of proposed developments, to animations that highlight changes to a landscape over a period of time. We typically create our [...]

Graphic Design

Where contextual understanding matters as much as design skills Thoughtful graphic design helps to get your message across quickly and effectively. We use a range of software programs to visualise often complex designs, ideas and concepts. It’s a critical skill in securing the approval of plans by relevant authorities. Our graphic design team develops eye-catching and [...]
