A Landscape Charter Assessment is currently being produced for the Tay Landscape Partnership area. Once finalised, it will describe the elements and patterns of features that make this area different and distinctive to any other. It will assess the condition of the landscape and the opportunities for restoring and strengthening distinctive features and identify actions that will address the threats to its character. It is important that this work is supported and informed by local knowledge and involvement.
Following the second of three stakeholder meetings, it was agreed that material presented at the meeting would be made more widely available, to allow as many people as possible to engage with it and respond.
Therefore, the draft landscape character assessment maps and descriptions have been uploaded to the Tay Landscape Partnership website, where they can be viewed and downloaded.
The Steering Group welcomes comments on the following main points:
• Do you agree with the areas shown in the maps, do they represent locally recognised areas?
• Do you agree with the names we have used for these areas? Are there other more appropriate names that could be used?
• Do you agree with the descriptions we have given of each area? What makes each of these areas unique - is there anything we have missed?
To view the map and descriptions go to www.taylp.org and click on the Resouces tab.
The next and final meeting of the consultation for the landscape character assessment will be on Tuesday 21st August at 7.00pm in Glenearn Community Campus.
