Landscape and Heritage

The objectives of this group are to:

  • define the scope and meaning of Landscape in the context of the Neighbourhood Plan
  • gather information about the areas included in the defined and agreed scope
  • provide information to the Steering Group on how landscape factors will influence and are influenced by the impact of the planning process
  • ensure that all landscape factors that contribute to the Vision are properly considered

November 2017 - Landscape Capacity Study

Following the HNA which identified an Housing Need of only 19 homes, the NPSG decided at its May meeting that no specific sites would be allocated in the Neighbourhood Plan. A Landscape Capacity Study was initiated to identify the impact of building in different areas, rather than on specific sites, of the Plan area.  The study completed at the end of October.

 

The NPSG approved the final version of the Landscape Capacity Study on 9 November 2017
