CFA Report – Colne Valley/No7 | Landscape and visual assessment Visual assessment 9.4.29 The following section describes the likely significant effects on visual receptors during construction. The construction assessment has been undertaken during winter, in line with best practice guidance, to ensure a robust assessment. However, in some cases, visibility of construction activities may be reduced during summer when vegetation, if present in a view, will be in leaf. Where residential receptors experience significant effects at night time arising from additional lighting, these are also presented in this section. Representative viewpoints within the study area considered to experience a non-significant effect (minor adverse or negligible) are described, Volume 5: Appendix LV-001-007 Part 4.

9.4.30 The number identifies the viewpoint locations which are shown on Maps LV-03-024b to LV-03-027a (Volume 2, CFA7 Map Book). In each case, the middle number (049.4.001) identifies the type of receptor that is present in this area – 2: Residential, 3: Recreational, 4: Transport, 6: Employment and 7: Active Sports.

9.4.31 Where a viewpoint may represent multiple types of receptor, the assessment is based on the most sensitive receptors. Effects on other receptor types with a lower sensitivity may be lower than those reported.

Viewpoint 049.2.002: View north from Harvil Road, Ickenham 9.4.32 There will be open and direct views of the topsoil storage area, offices and welfare, segment fabrication, sustainable placement areas and the treatment plant for excavated material in the foreground and middle ground of the view and over the Northolt tunnel and earthworks main compound located in the arable fields between Harvil Road and Breakspear Road South (approximately 770m from the viewpoint) within the adjacent CFA6. Oblique views of the removal of the existing vegetation within Newyears Green Covert on the skyline may be possible, together with the cranes and other plant associated with the construction of the cutting and track maintenance sidings to the east of Harvil Road and diversion of the overhead power lines. However, these will be filtered by intervening field boundary vegetation. The residential properties south of Harvil Farm to the Swakeleys Road junction will have oblique and partially filtered views of the southern extent of the construction compound area and sustainable placement areas. Construction activity will be screened from Harvil Farm by a temporary bund. There will be a substantial change partially filtered by intervening vegetation. Overall, there will be a medium magnitude of change.

9.4.33 The medium magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in a major adverse effect.

9.4.34 At night, lighting will be limited to an area to the south of the existing railway corridor and viewed within a predominantly dark landscape but filtered by Copthall Covert.

Therefore, the magnitude of change to this receptor at night is considered to be medium, resulting in a moderate adverse effect.

CFA Report – Colne Valley/No7 | Landscape and visual assessment

Viewpoint 049.6.003: View west from Railway bridge on Harvil Road, representative of Uxbridge Skip Hire.

9.4.35 Views will be focussed on the construction of the Colne Valley viaduct (approximately 200m from the viewpoint) as it traverses the view, reducing in height to come to grade. Views may be afforded of the Colne Valley viaduct and south embankment satellite compound looking north-west over the Chiltern Main Line and the remaining area of Newyears Green Covert. Intervening vegetation will screen views at lower levels, however tall construction plant such as cranes will be visible. Due to the introduction of new construction elements that will be highly visible in close proximity from this viewpoint, the magnitude of change is therefore considered to be high.

9.4.36 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the low sensitivity of the receptor, will result in moderate adverse effects.

Viewpoint 049.3.005: View west from PRoW (Footpath U50) 9.4.37 Vegetation removal within the Uxbridge Golf Course will open up views of the diversion of overhead power line in the middle ground (approximately 500m from the viewpoint). In the northern extent of the view, cranes will be visible across the Chiltern Main Line in the background. There will be the addition of new features that are continuously visible and incongruous with the existing view. Therefore the magnitude of change is therefore considered to be high.

9.4.38 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 051.3.002: View north along the Grand Union Canal PRoW (Footpath U72) and the Colne Valley Trail PRoW (Footpath U75) 9.4.39 There will be views of the vegetation clearance in the middle ground either side of the canal to enable the construction of the proposed viaduct (approximately 250m from the viewpoint) that will open up views to the lakes either side of the canal. Associated construction plant in particular cranes will be prominent in the view. The corridor of vegetation will focus the view towards the construction activity in this location. The addition of the viaduct construction activity will be continuously highly visible.

Therefore the magnitude of change is considered to be high.





9.4.40 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 051.4.003: View north from the Chiltern Main Line 9.4.41 There will be views of the construction of the proposed viaduct (approximately 600m from the viewpoint) and associated plant in the middle ground including the Colne Valley viaduct and south embankment satellite compound, bounded by hoarding and associated haul road. Open areas left by the removal of existing vegetation will also be visible from this elevated location. In addition, the demolition of Dew’s Farm, the HOAC buildings and the removal of elements of the overhead power line will also be visible in the middle ground and beyond. Therefore, due to the addition of new features that will be continuously highly visible and out of keeping with the existing view, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

CFA Report – Colne Valley/No7 | Landscape and visual assessment 9.4.42 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the medium sensitivity of the receptor, will result in a moderate adverse effect.

Viewpoint 052.4.001: View south from Harvil Road 9.4.43 There will be foreground views of the construction of the Colne Valley viaduct and its southern approach embankment (approximately 20m from the viewpoint) and associated satellite compound. Hoarding 2.4m in height (and possibly as high as 3.6m depending on acoustic requirements) will also be visible as it encloses the compound site. The excavation of a balancing pond and the demolition of three buildings within HOAC will be visible to the west. There will be filtered views of the Ickenham autotransformer feeder station and roadhead in the background. There will also be views of overhead power line construction in the middle distance to the south-west and north. There will be substantial changes in close proximity to the visual receptor. The magnitude of change is therefore considered to be high.

9.4.44 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the medium sensitivity of the receptor, will result in a moderate adverse effect.

Viewpoint 052.3.002: View south from the northern edge of Harefield No.2 Lake from PRoW (Footpath U34) 9.4.45 There will be short to middle distance filtered or open views through lakeside vegetation towards the construction of the viaduct (approximately 200m from the viewpoint). Within the view, there will be a temporary jetty positioned across the water, piers constructed and the spans being launched into position or constructed in-situ. There will be filtered views of the proposed National Grid feeder station during construction in the middle ground. The addition of the viaduct and associated construction activity will be incongruous with the existing view. Taking all of the above construction activity into account, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.46 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 052.2.004: View south-west from Harvil Road, Ickenham 9.4.47 Construction activity associated with the National Grid feeder station (approximately 250m from the viewpoint) and the removal of electricity pylon NG ZC046 associated with the overhead power line diversion will be visible in the middle ground. There will also be background filtered views of the viaduct construction activity, associated plant and Colne Valley viaduct satellite compound and haul route. The addition of new features will be continuously highly visible and incongruous with the existing valley view. Therefore the magnitude of change is therefore considered to be high.

9.4.48 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoints 053.4.002: View north-east from Moorhall Road, Denham Green and 054.4.001: View south-west from Moorhall Road 9.4.49 There will be views of the proposed viaduct construction and associated plant in the middle ground (approximately 150m from the viewpoint). The Colne Valley viaduct CFA Report – Colne Valley/No7 | Landscape and visual assessment jetty storage satellite compound, Colne Valley viaduct storage satellite compound and their accesses from Moorhall Road will also be visible. Areas of vegetation removal will also be visible either side of the road, along the route of the Proposed Scheme. Due to the existing roadside vegetation channelling the view along the road corridor, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.50 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the medium sensitivity of the receptor, will result in a moderate adverse effect.

Viewpoint 054.3.003: View south from Colne Valley Trail PRoW (Footpath U75) along the Grand Union Canal 9.4.51 There will be narrow views of the viaduct (approximately 50m from the viewpoint) under construction in the middle ground. Cranes will be the most noticeable element along the Grand Union Canal corridor, visible above the tops of trees alongside PRoW U75. The temporary diversion of the Grand Union Canal tow path will also be evident.

Taking the above into account, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.52 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 054.2.004: View south from Hillside Road, South Harefield 9.4.53 There will be views to the south of the construction of the Colne Valley viaduct and associated works in the middle ground, including tall cranes and the removal of lakeside vegetation. There will be distant views over rising ground towards the National Grid feeder station (approximately 400m from the viewpoint) and overhead power line construction activity. The addition of new features will be highly visible and are incongruous with the existing view. Also taking into account the expansive view and extent of construction activities which will be visible, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.54 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 054.2.005: View east from Harvil Road, South Harefield 9.4.55 There will be foreground filtered views through garden vegetation across Harvil Road towards agricultural fields where construction activity associated with the sustainable placement area (approximately 50m from the viewpoint) will be visible over the tops of hedgerows in the background of the view. As the excavated material is deposited during the construction process, the landform will rise resulting in increased plant visibility above the hedgelines. The view will be filtered, however taking into account the extensive scale of the construction activity, the magnitude of change is considered to be medium.

9.4.56 The medium magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in moderate adverse effects.

CFA Report – Colne Valley/No7 | Landscape and visual assessment

Viewpoint 054.3.006: View north east from PRoW (Footpath U31) near South Harefield 9.4.57 There will be foreground open views of construction activity at the sustainable placement area (approximately 170m from the viewpoint). Hedgerows within the foreground and middle ground of the view will be removed. The middle ground view will be altered by changes in topography, as land gradually rises and the background of the view becomes obscured as construction works progress. As the landform increases in height construction plant will form a moving feature on the skyline.

Taking into account the expansive view and extent of construction activities which will be visible, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.58 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the medium sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects.

Viewpoint 054.3.007: View north west from PRoW (Footpath U31) near South Harefield 9.4.59 There will be foreground (approximately 20m from the viewpoint) and middle ground open views of construction plant and the re-profiling of the sustainable placement area. The raising of landform in the middle ground will obscure the view beyond, screening woodland in the background. As the land rises further, construction plant will form a moving feature on the skyline. Considering the expansive view and extent of construction activities which will be visible, the magnitude of change is considered to be high.

9.4.60 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the medium sensitivity of the receptor, will result in major adverse effects and therefore significant.

Viewpoint 055.6.003: View east from Denham Media Park 9.4.61 Views of construction will be heavily filtered by intervening buildings and individual tree planting within the grounds of the Media Park. An area of established vegetation between the vegetated boundary of the Media Park and the Colne Valley lakes will be removed. There will be filtered views towards the Colne Valley viaduct and associated construction activity (approximately 200m from the viewpoint). There will be filtered views of the construction of the Colne Valley viaduct and associated cranes in the background, particularly from upper storey windows above the tree line. The magnitude of change is therefore considered to be high.

9.4.62 The high magnitude of change, assessed alongside the low sensitivity of the receptor, will result in moderate adverse effects.

Viewpoint 056.2.002: View south from St Mary’s Road, South Harefield 9.4.63 Construction activity will be visible (approximately 900m from the viewpoint) to the south from this elevated location. Filtered views will be afforded through foreground garden vegetation, across the Colne Valley towards the construction of the viaduct (approximately 850m from the view point) and associated high cranes in the background view. The addition of new features is incongruous with the existing view and will result in a medium magnitude of change.

9.4.64 The medium magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in moderate adverse effects.

Viewpoint 056.3.001: View south-west from Grand Union Canal, PRoW (Footpath U72) 9.4.65 There will be filtered views through lakeside vegetation and across the water towards construction works of the Colne Valley viaduct (approximately 1100m from the viewpoint) and embankment in the background. This view will also include areas of vegetation clearance, further opening up views across the lakes including views of viaduct construction activity in particular cranes However, the vegetated islands within the lake will partially interrupt views of the lower parts of the viaduct construction. Taking the above into account, the magnitude of change is considered to be medium.

9.4.66 The medium magnitude of change, assessed alongside the high sensitivity of the receptor, will result in moderate adverse effects.
