Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (GLVIA3)

The third edition of Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (GLVIA3) was published in collaboration with IEMA and came into force on 17 April 2013.

This is a key resource for landscape professionals. In general, suitably qualified and experienced landscape professionals should carry out and review landscape and visual impact assessments. However, provided they have had appropriate training and experience, other professionals may also do so.

GLVIA3 Panel

The GLVIA3 Panel continues to meet periodically to discuss issues relating to LVIA and when necessary publishes important clarifications relating to the book which are available free of charge.
