Fishing lakes, Bevercotes, Nottinghamshire

On this site beside the River Maun in Nottinghamshire, we prepared landscape proposals for the transformation of marginal farmland, into two fishing lakes and an equestrian centre, and prepared a landscape and visual impact appraisal to accompany the planning application.

Our landscape masterplan was developed following ecological survey and a study of historic field patterns to allow us to utilise existing features in the landscape to form new habitats (e.g. the wetland areas next to the river to encourage water voles) and to use Victorian maps to realign hedgerow planting along the lines of old field boundaries.
