The quality and variety of the landscape of Copeland is an invaluable resource and one of the district’s greatest assets. Protecting and enhancing the special character of the landscape that contributes towards local identity and distinctiveness is an important part of the planning process and essential to quality of life. Landscape character assessment is a useful tool in identifying the special qualities that give a landscape its sense of place. Recognised by Government and promoted by Natural England, it can aid the planning, design and management of a landscape.
