Landscapes character assessment (LCA)

West Suffolk Landscape Character Assessment

Landscape character assessment is used to identify the special character that gives a landscape its sense of place. Through this understanding the assessment helps inform planning and management of future change.

Landscape character assessment recognises that all landscapes matter, not just those that are designated.

The West Suffolk Landscape Character Assessment provides a detailed understanding of the landscape across the district. It explains the past actions and events that have helped shape the landscape we see today and identifies 25 unique landscape character areas in West Suffolk. Separate reports, for each of these landscape character areas, describe and map their distinctive landscape character and sensitivities, noting their key features (see below).
