Landscape character assessment

Landscape character assessment is a method of identifying, mapping and classifying the special qualities of an area of landscape. This helps us make informed decisions about how to manage development in the area.

We have reviewed the adopted Landscape Character Assessment (LCA SPD) 2005 in order to update the current policy context in South Gloucestershire, to incorporate biodiversity considerations, and to update the landscape descriptions for character areas where significant changes have occurred since the document was adopted. The Revised Landscape Character Assessment (2014) was adopted by the council on 12 November 2014.

The Landscape Character Assessment provides a statement of the character of South Gloucestershire’s landscapes, their distinctive attributes and features, together with an assessment of the changes that are taking place in the landscape and strategic guidance to help steer future evolution.
