Visual Assessment

The landscape and visual assessment has closely examined the landscape character of the area around Rainham Lodge Farm and how the terrain might be affected by the introduction of phased mineral extraction as proposed.

In particular, the potential visibility of the development from six ‘viewpoints’ has been carefully considered. This study has helped to inform the design, layout, method of working and restoration of the land.

Examination of the viewpoints indicates that the current landform is largely able to accommodate the temporary changes brought about by the proposed quarrying activity.
