RNLI Lifeboat Station
CEC landscape architects were commissioned by Royal Haskoning / RNLI Cornwall in 2008 to carry out a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) to identify the potential impacts of a proposed slipway, slipway station and a winch house at the RNLI The Lizard Lifeboat Station, Cornwall.
Replacement of the old facilities was required to accommodate the new larger Tamar lifeboat generation. The assessment involved evaluation of the proposals from the sea and associated photography. A comprehensive report was prepared, accompanied by a set of drawings including landform, landscape designations, landscape character and Zone of Theoretical Visibility (ZTV). Being subject to Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations, the report and documentation was prepared to that standard, for example including evaluation of construction phase impacts and a significance assessment.
The planning application was successful and the scheme has been implemented.
