Hampshire County Council

Strategic Landscape Sensitivity Workshop

Hampshire County Council, in conjunction with West Berkshire Council, have published a methodology for assessing inherent landscape sensitivity at a strategic level. The methodology, published in 2006, aims to respond to PPG1 and PPS7, which place emphasis on land use planning decisions being informed by the character of the landscape. In 2005, Countryscape facilitated a peer review workshop, which aimed to disseminate the approach and discuss its applicability as a widely used planning tool.
