How can the DLCA be used for land management?20 June 2016
The DLCA provides an information resource to inform land management decisions and agri-environment scheme applications by identifying valued elements in the agricultural landscape. At a national scale agri-environment measures are targeted by National Character Area. The Farm Environment Plan Guidance instructs applicants to use local Landscape Character Assessments where they are available. Applicants should refer to the Devon Character Area profiles, which highlight locally distinctive features at a county scale. Applicants may also refer to district landscape character assessments for additional detail.
