Settlement context analysis drawings

The information from the baseline maps has been condensed and used to create a series of simplified analysis drawings for each of the settlements. These are available to download as pdfs from the link below.

The analysis drawings identify the following strategic subject areas on one pdf for each settlement;

  • Landscape character sensitivity
  • Biodiversity sensitivity
  • Cultural heritage sensitivity
  • Landmarks, Intrusion and representative views
  • Green and blue corridors
  • Landform
