Please note that as of 12 February 2021, we are no longer accepting comments on draft TGN 02/21.

This guidance note is still in draft, and should not be used or referred to as a final document. We expect to release the final version of the TGN in May 2021.

The Landscape Institute is seeking feedback on its latest technical note from members who both assess, and judge assessments of, landscape value.

The concept of landscape value has evolved over time. The European Landscape Convention (ELC) – signed by the UK Government in 2006 – acknowledges that ‘the landscape is an important part of the quality of life for people everywhere… [and] a key element of individual and social well-being’.

Draft TGN 02/21 provides information and guidance to landscape professionals who need to make judgments about the value of a landscape. The LI is seeking members’ feedback on the document, with particular focus on:

  • its potential use in day-to-day work
  • how ‘landscape quality’ and ‘landscape qualities’ have been defined
  • how ‘landscape value’ and ‘valued landscape’ have been defined
  • whether the document should constitute best practice or be for information only

For members

You can access draft TGN 02/21 here. Please send all comments to the LI technical team at by Friday 12 February 2021.

The LI would like to thank the following volunteers for their work on this draft document:

  • Kate Bailey CMLI MRTPI
  • Michelle Bolger CMLI
  • Rebecca Knight CMLI
  • Jeremy Smith CMLI
