Draft Landscape Character Assessment

This Draft Landscape Character Asessment (LCA) was prepared in 2006/2007 as a background technical document for the Core Strategy Preferred Options. The LCA identifies seven Landscape Character Areas; for each area there is an assessment of its key characteristics and an evaluation of the strength of character, condition and sensitivity, culminating in a set of guidelines for the management and development of the area.

MKC has recently commissioned the review and finalisation of the draft LCA. It is expected that this updated assessment will be available for comments in the autumn of 2014.
