Landscape Character Assessment
We undertake Landscape Characterisation at site level and district level, for private clients and local authorities. FPCR have published district-wide Landscape Character Assessments at South Kesteven, Hinckley and Bosworth, and North East Lincolnshire.
These have been used by Local Authorities to inform their emerging Local Plans, and enable them to make informed decisions on potential locations for strategic sites. We use the latest guidance from Natural England and DEFRA to establish clear and robust methodologies, establishing clear criteria for evaluating landscape value and landscape sensitivity.
Drawing upon the latest GIS and CAD software, we can generate character maps, landscape typology plans and topography plans at any scale, to support written assessments.
