Landscape Character Assessment

How is it used?

It provides key information that can be used to help make decisions on the appropriate location, scale and design of new development.

It would also interest individuals and local communities who have an interest in their neighbourhood landscape and would also provide a framework for more detailed studies of local landscape character such as design statements and parish plans.

The assessment also has wider applications such as influencing land management decisions such as agri-environment schemes.
