Undy Monmouthshire

Historic Landscape Assessment was undertaken for Natural Resources Wales in connection with two proposed wind turbines on land near Great House Farm within the sensitive Gwent Levels Historic Landscape.

Working in partnership with Natural Resources Wales, our expert research services were able to assess the level of potential impact of the proposed turbines on the Historic Landscape Character Area of Caldicot Moor. This Area forms part of a rare fen-edge landscape of substantial amenity value which potentially contains important buried archaeology.

Results

We were able to conclude based on detailed research and analysis consistent with advice contained in Planning Policy Wales that the proposal could potentially reduce the value of this rich multi-period landscape of national importance and ‘call-in’ for determination by the Secretary of State.
