DM11 – Landscape

The Policy intentions aspire to “Protect areas of greatest tranquillity from development”.  To be effective this aspiration needs to be carried forward into the policy.

 

The final bullet point calls for particular care against light pollution in areas where dark skies are an important feature of the area.  It would be sensible and useful for the council to introduce a designation for such areas and to include them on the proposals map as planning constraints.

Noise also impacts on tranquillity and CPRE would welcome this aspect considered within landscape policy.

Please see CPRE Tranquillity Briefing March 2013 attached.
