Landscape aesthetics, ecology and public benefits
Landscapes 4 People (L4P) is the sole trading name for Peter Currell who offers a landscape consultancy service and other services locally in Sussex.
With 25 years Countryside Management experience in both protected and wider landscapes, he has a wide range of skills available and existing contacts to help you develop thinking and ideas, put policy into practice and solve problems.
The primary focus for this service is enhancing the landscape ecology, aesthetics and public benefits (or ecosystem services) at utility sites and along infrastructure corridors.
L4P can help develop priority projects, partnerships and collaboration to take forward concepts to reality.
Most recently he has worked for the South Downs National Park Authority as the Partnerships Delivery and Living Landscapes Manager. During this time he led the development of the National Park Management Plan. For eight years he worked with electricity companies to underground low voltage overhead lines and recently represented all English National Parks in developing the new Visual Impact Provision from OFGEM to mitigate the visual impact of the National Grid infrastructure.
As a recently established consultant, he has worked for UK Power Networks, National Grid and National Parks England.
400Kv pylons running through Fareham form part of the 'Natural Grid', a concept developed by National Grid

1. Developing the strategy and delivery for enhancing the landscapes and ecology in the vicinity of utility infrastructure networks
2. Undertaking an early initial assessment of proposed projects and reducing the costs of future ecological and landscape constraints during the full planning and delivery phase
