MVGLA has extensive experience with giving independent evidence with respect to Landscape and Visual matters to public inquiries in England, Scotland and Wales.
Marc, supported by Beatrice, recently gave evidence at the Scout Moor wind farm public inquiry and is currently acting as client adviser to SPEN with respect to their portfolio of proposed wind farm grid connections and grid reinforcement and enhancement.
Previous public inquiries include:
Barmoor windfarm, upheld;
Langham windfarm, refused;
Swinford Windfarm, upheld;
Roos windfarm, upheld;
Druim Ba windfarm, refused;
Clyde windfarm, upheld;

Cumulative landscape and visual effects were a key consideration at the Barmoor conjoined inquiry.
At the Swinford windfarm public inquiry, potential effects on Stanford Hall Registered Historic Park and Garden was one of the key issues.
Marc and Beatrice also have extensive experience with the critical review of landscape and visual assessments focusing on aspects of methodology, significance thresholds and consistency of impact judgements. Marc has also regularly spoken at conferences.
