Pembrokeshire County Council has published draft Supplementary Planning Guidance on Landscape.
The draft Landscape Character Assessment (draft LCA) will help understand the range and diversity of landscapes in Pembrokeshire (outside of the National Park) and the elements which contribute to them.
The Landscape Character Assessment uses information from LANDMAP. LANDMAP is the all-Wales system where landscapes are recorded and evaluated into a nationally consistent data set.
LANDMAP includes five datasets
– Visual and Sensory Landscape, Geological Landscape, Landscape Habitats, Cultural Landscape, Historic Landscape
which map and classify landscapes from the unique perspective of each dataset.
The Landscape Character Assessment identifies 29 distinct landscape character areas. For each landscape character area, key characteristics and qualities are set out. Changes to the landscape including past and present changes, alongside likely future changes and key sensitivities help to inform guidelines to protect, conserve or enhance areas.
This Supplementary Planning Guidance, will guide the Council when it considers planning applications which could impact on the landscape.
Please take the time to consider the draft Landscape Character Assessment.
