Stephenson Halliday was commissioned by Dulas to produce a LVIA and supporting graphics as part of the Environmental Report for Allt Essan Hydro Scheme (350kW run-of-river hydro-electric scheme) near Auchessan in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

The site was predominantly located within an area managed for forestry and a detailed schedule of mitigation was included that described the measures to be undertaken at the construction and restoration stage.

The report also included an assessment of visual effects associated with recreational receptors using local footpaths.
