22 candidate Special Landscape Areas (cSLAs) were identified in the approved Review of Local Landscape Designations (Feb 2010). The candidates are based upon landscape character assessment and evaluation of relative landscape value following the methodology set out in ‘Guidance on Local Landscape Designations’ published by SNH and Historic Scotland (2004). Candidates will be designated through the forthcoming Local Development Plan and will replace the existing local landscape designations: Areas of Great Landscape Value (AGLV) and Areas of Outstanding Landscape Quality (AOLQ). In the interim the Review will constitute a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. cSLAs are accompanied by ‘Statements of Importance’, which set out their key characteristics and attributes.
