Client: David Lloyd Leisure
Location: Lisburn, Northern Ireland
Nicholas Pearson Associates carried out a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and ecological surveys for a proposed new leisure scheme in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, in a developing commercial and retail suburb of the city.
The leisure centre comprised of a main building of about 10,500 sq m on a site of approximately 2.6 hectares. Outdoor elements included floodlit tennis courts, an exhibition/competition court, club members' terrace, outdoor swimming pool and car parking. Indoor elements included tennis courts, swimming pool, gym and restaurant.
As part of the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, we prepared landscape proposals and computer generated photomontages.
We also undertook ecological surveys and advised on nature conservation issues to ensure related environmental legislation requirements were met.
Our assessment work formed part of the Environmental Statement submitted in support of the successful planning submission.
