Abereiddy Coastal Defence LVIA

Client: : Pembrokeshire County Council Location: : Abereiddy, Pembrokeshire, South Wales Dates: : 2013

Abereiddy Bay is situated on the north coast of Pembrokeshire in South Wales. It is set within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and lies within an area designated as ‘Heritage Coast’ and includes sections of the Wales Coast Path.

HDD were commissioned by Pembrokeshire County Council to carry out a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) for a proposed new coastal defence, required to replace the existing coastal defence which had failed. The report also included numerous panoramic images and photo real montages of the proposal from various viewpoints along the coast, demonstrating potential visual changes to the site when the new coastal defence is built.
