LandWorks is at the forefront of planning and permitting in the world of visual assessment and aesthetic analysis. Our work encompasses the review of a wide range of projects including renewable energy (wind, solar, biomass and hydropower facilities), planning for new transmission line corridors, substations and associated facilities, and review of proposed cell towers, earth extraction and other proposed development. We are highly skilled at addressing and incorporating meaningful aesthetic guidelines and standards into master plans, corridor management plans and scenic resource protection plans.

LandWorks is a recognized aesthetic expert in Vermont (before the Public Service Board and District Environmental Commissions), in New Hampshire (before the Site Evaluation Committee), and in Maine (before the Department of Environmental Protection and Land Use Planning Commission). We also have a unique and well-established capability in assisting landowners and municipalities with Vermont’s Act 250 and Section 248/Quechee Review permitting processes.
