Many District and Borough authorities have produced local assessments which may form part of their Local Development Framework. For further information on district work see the relevant local authority.
The Hampshire assessment complements local assessments by providing a strategic overview. It provides an evidence base which will be used in the county’s work, including strategic planning, land management work and place shaping programmes and replaces the 2000 character assessment ‘The Hampshire Landscape: A Strategy for the Future’.
You are encouraged to make contact with the relevant local planning authority to discuss which character assessment should be the primary reference for your purposes.
The Environment Group will also be happy to provide the information in an accessible format on request. Contact them by email at Landscape@hants.gov.uk
