Landscape Character Assessment

Overview

A Landscape Character Assessment (LCA) is a method used for understanding what the landscape is like, how it formed, and how it may change in the future.

It helps to define what makes an area unique as well as what should be done to protect and improve its character.

LCA is important because it allows informed decisions to be made that enable us to plan for a environmentally sustainable future where new development is well situated and sensitive to its location.
