Aerial View of a Houses


You may be asked to submit a Landscape and Visual Assessment as part of the Resource Consent procedure. This report will examine the potential landscape and visual effects of a development.


These reports can be requested for a range of different projects such as:

1. a new house in a coastal setting, significant ecological area or adjacent to an outstanding natural feature
2. to assess the visual impact of applying ‘standout’ branding on a building
3. the effects of a proposed tree removal
4. proposed new utilities infrastructure in urban or rural areas
5. a subdivision project with a greater number of Lots than the local authority planning rules allow, or where the proposed subdivision may have an impact on other planning rules such as sensitive ridgelines.

Our team can prepare assessment reports to support your application and cover off all the things that Council will want to know.
