Lower Hall Pumping Station
Liz Lake Associates was instructed by Essex and Suffolk Water to produce a Landscape and Visual Impact (LVIA), detailed planting proposals and Verified Photomontages for a proposed water pumping station within the Lee Valley. The proposals for this infrastructure project included a new 462m2 Pumping Station, 146m2 switchgear and transformer building, associated hard standing and related pumping infrastructure.
The LVIA and the Verified Photomontages helped identify visual and landscape issues associated with the development. These were addressed early in the application which allowed for a site-specific planting design to be suggested which offers the necessary screening but also brings ecological and biodiversity benefits to the site. Once the final designs were completed, Liz Lake Associates put together presentation boards to inform the local community at public consultation.
Working closely with the client, Liz Lake Associates was able to inform the final site layout and design proposals to help facilitate a smooth planning application for this infrastructure project. Our work was submitted as part of a detailed planning application to the Local Planning Authority. The application is currently in planning, but has been granted approval by committee.
