BMD undertook a standalone LVIA to support the planning application for the proposed development.
This included in-depth desktop analysis of adopted and emerging and planning policy, local and regional landscape character areas, as well as liaison with Oxford City Council to agree viewpoint locations.
This was then followed up by extensive testing of views in the field, from a number of nearby sensitive locations, including within Forest Hill Conservation Area and Shotover Park and Gardens (Grade I Listed).
BMD also co-ordinated the production of a series of verified views to support the LVIA. In total, 12 verified views were created, using a combination of wirelines and full renders, which helped to convey the massing, materiality of built form and landscape proposals for the site.
