How can the DLCA be used by local communities?20 June 2016
The European Landscape Convention requires the involvement of all members of society in the protection, management and planning of landscapes. This involvement will safeguard the heritage value of landscapes, enable positive change and help communities to look ahead to adapt and create the landscapes of the future. The DLCA helps local communities to understand the context of their landscape for community planning. The Devon Character Area profiles and Landscape Character Types provide information about the landscape that will help communities to identify and value the distinctive characteristics of their place.
