Hampshire Integrated Character Assessment

Landscape Character Areas

Landscape Character Areas are geographically unique areas of the County. They are areas where a combination of factors such as topography, vegetation pattern, land use and cultural associations combine to create an area with a distinct, recognisable character.  After the area is described, it is evaluated to bring out the things that are affecting the landscape now and in the future, and the effect of these ‘forces for change’ on its most important qualities. Seascape Character Areas are included in the Landscape Character web pages.

This page has the full set of Landscape Character Assessments for Hampshire.
They are provided in PDF format which you can view, print, or save to your own computer.
