An Approach to Seascape Character Assessment
LDA Design is the principal author of ‘An Approach to Seascape Character Assessment’, a Natural England Commissioned Report (NECR105) that forms a companion to ‘An Approach to Landscape Character Assessment’ published in 2014.
An Approach to Seascape Character Assessment sets out important principles for the assessment of coastal and seascape character and a clear and structured methodology – including how to carry out desk study and field survey; where to source data and information that can inform the characterisation process; and the type of outputs that an assessment typically delivers. It also demonstrates the value and importance of Seascape Character Assessments for a wide range of applications including informing decisions that may affect coastal and marine environments and communities.
