4. Landscape character assessment: informing planning, design, and management


Our landscapes change over time. Landscape character assessment helps us describe and understand the ‘baseline’, allowing us to inform and manage that change. Landscape character assessment often informs planning policies and land use – but it can inform land management too.

Discover how your work can shape strategies, guidelines and action to enhance landscape character and improve ecosystems.
