What is a Local Landscape Character Assessment (LLCA)?
It is an assessment of the local landscape, identifying and documenting key features; landscape types and classifying the landscape to help make informed decisions.
The LLCA provides a framework to understand the landscape, its character and what gives the area its unique sense of place and value.
By carrying out a landscape character assessment reasoned and informed judgemants on future land-use and development can be made, as well as what needs to be protected.
The Local Landscape Character Assessment can be used both as a stand alone document and as an evidence base to inform the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)
