The next ILI webinar in our Lunch ‘n’ Learn series looks at a topic many of our members have expressed an interest in learning more about - Landscape Character Assessment and Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment.
Event will take place at 1pm on Thursday 27th January.
In late 2020, Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) published Technical and Standards Documents for landscape character assessment (LCA) and landscape and visual impact assessment (LVIA) for light railway, metro railway, bus rapid transit (BRT), cycleways and proposed national roads.
