National Shipyard No.1 - Chepstow

Overview

We undertook the landscape and visual impact assessment component of an Environmental Statement for 650 new homes within the River Wye Corridor at Chepstow.

Addressing key concerns, our assessment considered the impact of the proposal on; views from Chepstow Castle, views across the river from Offa's Dyke Path, views along the river corridor and from the Wales Coast Path. The assessment process was crucial in developing the mitigation strategy that included a riverside park and green infrastructure corridors running through the development.

Key Features
