Information relating to landscape character and landscape character assessment (LCA) has grown over the years. Unfortunately much of the useful early information has been archived or become dispersed across the web.
Landscape Character “Reading List” 5/15 draws together as much as possible of this legacy of information into a searchable document to assist researchers.
This accompanies a new Information Note 8/15 on the current situation regarding LCA within the UK and the Republic of Ireland which was compiled by Christine Tudor CMLI and her colleagues in other nations.
For the very latest situation with landscape character guidance etc. please contact the relevant national governmental agency. For instance in England this is Natural England and in Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage.
The LI has also published information on Townscape Character Assessment.
