Detailed reports produced on a specific locality which follow a professional methodology to assess and define landscape character. These assessments can be used as evidence by local councils and communities through the production of Neighborhood Plans, resulting in enhanced protection of landscapes from unsustainable development. Funding for communities to develop Neighbourhood Plans can in most areas be sought through local authorities. Landscape assessments are also useful in the development of Parish or Town Plans.
Conservation Management Plans and Appraisals
These are comprehensive reports produced on specific heritage gardens of interest to enable a vision for the future use and sustainable management of the garden. These are essential documents for any heritage greenspace, park or garden, and are a requirement if seeking grants from HLF or bidding for Green Flag status.
