Local Place Making - Landscape Character

So that the Borough remains an attractive place to live, we will draw up policies and undertaking masterplanning to ensure that new development creates good new places, or enhances existing places.

The adopted Core Strategy identifies that the Borough is part of three strategic landscape character areas, whilst more detailed recent landscape character work (2015) identified ten distinctive local landscape character areas, and assessed the capacity of some areas to accommodate new development.

The adopted policy approach identifying and seeking to safeguard the most valued landscapes in the context of the national presumption in favour of sustainable development still remains valid, so we propose to retain it. This means that landscape character is most likely to be a factor in deciding how to design and plan new development (see IPPS), and only in very exceptional cases, is it anticipated that impact on landscape be a show stopping issue.
