Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Landscape Character Area map

This map is an indicative characterisation and description of the landscape in terms of distinct patterns and elements that distinguish them from each other.

It helps to identify the features that create local distinctiveness and gives the landscape it’s unique ‘sense of place’.

These categorisations and descriptions are derived from the South Downs Integrated Landscape Character Assessment (SDILCA), and provide important evidence to help achieve a landscape-led approach to development.
