Peripheral Landscape Studies

A series of peripheral landscape studies have been prepared for the main settlements in South Somerset.

The studies look in detail at landscape character and visual sensitivity, and consider other values and constraints, in order to assess the capacity of the landscape surrounding these settlements to accommodate new development (housing, employment, open space provision etc.).

Peripheral landscape studies have been produced for the following settlements:

a. Bruton Peripheral Landscape Study

b. Castle Cary Peripheral Landscape Study

c. Chard Peripheral Landscape Study

d. Crewkerne Peripheral Landscape Study

e. Ilchester Peripheral Landscape Study

f. Ilminster Peripheral Landscape Study

g. Langport Peripheral Landscape Study

h. Martock Peripheral Landscape Study

i. Milborne Port Peripheral Landscape Study

j. Somerton Peripheral Landscape Study

k. South Petherton Peripheral Landscape Study

l. Stoke sub Hamdon Peripheral Landscape Study

m. Templecombe Peripheral Landscape Study

n. Wincanton Peripheral Landscape Study
