How can the DLCA be used for development management?20 June 2016
Development management decisions need to be informed by the landscape context of the proposed development. In a county as diverse as Devon, the potential impact of development will vary in different landscapes. The DLCA helps development management decisions to take account of the distinctive characteristics of different landscapes and the potential impact of development. Development managers should refer to the Devon Character Area profiles for an overview of the landscape. For local development decisions it will often be necessary to refer to the local Landscape Character Assessments created by district councils. See also Training initiatives.
