    One of four component layer of the Scottish wildness map. This layer seeks to capture ruggedness: 'landform which is rugged, or otherwise physically challenging' (Annex 1 SNH policy statement). The dataset is on a scale of 1-256 indicating relative levels of ruggedness. Consequently the data is best viewed at a national or regional scale. The methodology is adapted from the 2008 Wildness Study in the Cairngorms National Park.

    Designated landscapes within Perth and Kinross which merit special attention, either because they are of particular value and warrant protection or because they are degraded and require active management or positive restoration, or are under threat from inappropriate development. The associated LDP Landscape Supplementary Guidance in which they are contained was approved by Scottish Ministers on 17th June 2015.

    The heat demand is an amalgamation of a number of different spatial datasets that have associated heat demand values. The map has been developed on the principle of applying data with increasing levels of certainty and overlaying and replacing individual property heat demand values. The heat demand layer is made up of a number of rasters which depict this demand in different ways. The heat demand rasters present a visualisation of the heat demand density by showing total demand within grid squares. These are shown at various grid sizes (50x50, 250x250, 500x500 and 1000x1000). The Scotland Heat Map is supported by a number of documents including users guidance which is available at http://www.scotland.gov.uk/heatmap 2.1 Methodology report 2.2 Manual 2.3 Metadata 2.4 Local knowledge validation & improvement process 2.5 Data management 2.6 Limitations and protections for data use and analysis 2.7 Scotland heat map – interactive and local web

    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.

    Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) are served by the council to protect individual and groups of trees which are considered of sufficient merit to warrant formal protection either for their contribution to the setting of the landscape/ built environment or where the tree itself is considered to be of interest either as an example of its species or of local / historic interest
