New Forresters Care Home

Assessing the visual impact of a care home on its New Forest locale

Leading UK care home operator St Cloud Care Plc. appointed Influence to carry out a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) for a new development on the site of a demolished care home. Located on a private drive just outside the historic centre and conservation area of Hythe near Southampton, New Forresters sits near the edge of the New Forest and Southampton Water, surrounded by residential and small wooded areas.

The new three-storey 70-bed care home required new parking, access provision and landscaping. We prepared a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) to address any effects the new care home might have on its locale. As part of our landscape services package, we helped to prepare visual representations of the proposed development. While the initial planning application was refused, we have since acted as Landscape and Visual Experts at an appeal hearing. Watch this space for more news…
