A Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment for a Strategic Development Area (SDA) covering nearly 2,250 acres to the south west of Reading. The SDA would comprise 7,500 homes, retail/community facilities, 5 primary schools, a secondary school, sports and recreation facilities, an energy centre, highway infrastructure including mass rapid transit system and a comprehensive flood alleviation scheme. A comprehensive survey of tree and woodland cover was undertaken and the results of a qualitative and quantitative assessment fed into the masterplanning process. The outcome was the retention and protection of large areas of valuable woodland which became integrated into the masterplan to provide a green infrastructure of both visual and amenity value.
