Description

This study forms  chapter 16 of the Stage 2 Preliminary Environmental Information (Stage 2 PEI) of the Rhiannon Offshore Wind Farm, which is part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). 
The study was carried out by LDA Design and describes the existing environment with regard to Seascape, Landscape and Visual Amenity (SLVIA) and assesses the potential impacts of the Offshore Development area of the proposed Rhiannon Wind Farm (RWF).
The study assesses and describes:
 -The landscape and seascape planning policy context for the Offshore Development including a review of the key designations and planning policies relevant to the application site and the wider study area and the effects of the Offshore Development on these designations;
 -The seascape and landscape character of the study area, and the sensitivity of regional seascape units and landscape character areas/types at a national/regional and local scale; 
 -The visual prominence of the Offshore Development and the sensitivity of representative visual receptors;
 -The magnitude of effect arising from the construction, operation and decommissioning of the Offshore Development;
 -The significance of the effects of the Offshore Development on seascape and landscape character, and on representative visual receptors; and
 -The cumulative effects of the Offshore Development to the identified baseline in combination with other onshore and offshore wind farms and infrastructure which are constructed/operational; and/or consented and in-planning/in-scoping within a 60km cumulative area of search.
