Dataset provides details of areas where the scenery is highly valued locally and designated to ensure that the landscape is not damaged by inappropriate development. The designations raise awareness of the landscape qualities that make the particular areas distinctive, and have associated policies to safeguard their valued features. They aim to promote understanding of the distinctive character and special qualities of the landscape, ensuring that there is careful consideration of development and the impacts that may result on that landscape, while supporting positive change and opportunities for enjoyment, maintenance and enhancement of the distinctive character.
