We provided landscape consultancy in connection with the proposed extension of this existing hospital located within the High Weald AONB and Green Belt and lying in part of the former grounds of a listed building and historic park and garden. At the pre-planning stages, our input included:
- advising on siting and layout in particular to achieve a balance of cut and fill and minimise tree loss
- advising on landscape design implications of the scheme (for example, phasing, level changes and potential cost and construction issues)
- landscape and visual impact assessment
- preparation of a landscape masterplan
The scheme has subsequently received planning consent and we are preparing tender drawings and specifications for the landscape scheme.
