A landscape character assessment (LCA) is a management tool that helps us identify, map and assess the special qualities of an area of landscape.

The LCA is a reference document for everyone interested in the sustainable management of landscape in South Gloucestershire.

It helps us make informed decisions about how to manage development in the area.

What a landscape character assessment includes

Our LCA provides a statement of:

  • the character of our special landscapes
  • their distinctive attributes and features
  • an assessment of the changes that are taking place in the landscape
  • strategic guidance to help steer future management
