A visual assessment can take many forms depending upon the type and scale of the project and the locality.  It can be a simple viewshed analysis (from what locations can this site be seen and what locations can be seen from the site) or a complex methodology of establishing visual catchments, determining visual qualities of the landscape (landform, landcover, backdrop, distinctive features), assigning visual values, determining visual sensitivities (viewer types and frequencies), assessing the overall visual impact and making associated recommendations.

Some examples of visual assessments undertaken by design team ink include:

  • North Byron Parklands Festival Site, Yelgun
  • Proposed Quarry Expansion and future mixed use education and recreation facility, Lennox Head
  • Proposed Residential Subdivision, Lennox Head
  • Concrete Batching Plant Expansion, Grafton
