Policy 3 – Landscape and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Para. 1 As written, the wording suggests that all the ‘distinctive features’ will be protected ‘where possible’, which cannot, and must not, be the intention. The distinctive features must always be protected but it is accepted that they can only be enhanced where possible. We therefore propose the following wording:

The landscape character of the District and the countryside, including areas of tranquillity, will be conserved and the distinctive features that contribute to the special character will be protected and will be enhanced where possible.
