Landscape Character Assessment

The West Somerset Landscape Character Assessment was prepared in order to support the drafting of the West Somerset District Local Plan 2006.  The study was published in November 1999 it used the landscape character approach embodied in Planning Policy Guidance Note 7 - "The Countryside - Environmental Quality and Economic and Social Development" February 1997.

The very limited changes in the West Somerset Local Planning Authority area since 1999 mean that the study remains fully relevant as part of the Local Plan evidence base.  The document can be downloaded from the 'Related Documents' section on the right of the page.
