Farm building conversions

PBA’s landscape and ecology teams were commissioned to prepare joint landscape, visual and ecological appraisals of the conversions of a range of farm buildings, including listed buildings, and the development of new buildings, over three sites located in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, to provide new residential and employment uses.

The appraisals provide robust evidence that the redevelopments will not lead to significant harm to landscape character, visual amenity or nature conservation interests. Having established the site constraints through site visits and desk-based analysis, our design work is closely integrated with the vision and technical requirements of the wider project team.

Subsequently, we have designed integrated landscape and ecology strategy and mitigation plans, which also sympathetically and holistically incorporate noise mitigation, SUDs, vehicular access and car parking into the landscape.
