The SVIA was undertaken by landscape architects at LUC in 2013 on behalf of Forewind Ltd. The assessment considers impacts on seascape and views during construction, operation and decommissioning of Dogger Bank Teesside A & B. The assessment of impacts on landscape and views arising from the onshore grid connection work associated with the project is provided in a separate Technical Report (ES Chapter 21 Appendix A) and summarised in Chapter 21 Landscape and Visual of the Environemental Statement. In addition, impacts on historic seascape character as it pertains to perceptions and associations with the sea surface are considered in this assessment. Potential impacts on the historic character of the water column, seabed and sub-seabed are dealt with in Chapter 18 Marine and Coastal Archaeology of the ES. Data was presented using ESRI ArcGIS software.
