Supplementary Guidance - Landscape

Purpose and Scope of Guidance

The icon Adopted Landscape Supplementary Guidance (2020) [23Mb] has been produced to include the review and update of Local Landscape Designations in Perth and Kinross into the Council's planning policy framework using the icon Landscape Methodology [524Kb].  It also provides further advice on the implementation of Local Development Plan Policy 39: Landscape within the 11 Special Landscape Areas, and will help to bring forward land management initiatives to protect and enhance these areas. The Guidance has been updated to align with the recently adopted Local Development Plan (2019) and changes to policy particularly on Wild Land.

The Guidance was approved by the Council's Strategic Policy and Resources Committee on the 29 January 2020 and submitted to Scottish Ministers for consideration on 3 February 2020. Following the necessary adoption procedures, the Supplementary Guidance has now been formally adopted by the Council.

Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)

As part of the process we have to consult SNH, SEPA and Historic Scotland on whether the plan, programme or strategy is likely to raise issues of significant environmental impact.

We sent our icon Screening Report [655Kb] to the consultation authorities to determine whether the supplementary guidance is likely to have significant effects on the environment on 8 May 2018.  You can also view the responses from the consultation authorities:

Having consulted the three consultation authorities, and having considered the criteria set out in the Act, the Council considered that the Local Landscape Areas Supplementary Guidance is unlikely to have significant environmental effects and has therefore decided that SEA is not required.
