Landscape character areas
Goal: Understanding the districts
Landscapes and their character reflect the relationship between people and place and are a key part in forming the setting to our everyday lives and the natural environment. These landscapes are extremely important to the districts, they are part of their cultural heritage. With high quality planning, design and management they offer an opportunity to provide a link between people and place. A sensitive, informed, and integrated approach should be taken to conserve, enhance, restore and create landscapes that are attractive, diverse and publicly valued, showing that environmental, social and economic benefits can go hand in hand.
