Council guide to save landscape

The publication of a landscape strategy looks to safeguard the landscape from the development pressures of the 21st century.

A county council aims to safeguard its landscape from “21st century pressures” with the publication of a landscape strategy. The document by West Sussex County Council gives guidance to planners, developers, landowners and communities, setting out five key objectives for safeguarding the future appearance of the county. It states that new developments should be of high quality and reinforce the nature of the landscape, conserve and enhance historic character and encourage sustainable practices while conserving and improving wildlife habitats. Each objective is backed by guidance and details of local and national planning policies. L A Strategy for the West Sussex Landscape can be bought from www.westsussex.gov.uk.
