The Landscape Character Assessment in Welwyn Hatfield makes a valuable contribution to informing planning policy development and planning application decisions.

In 2005 the council completed a detailed landscape character assessment of the borough.  This builds on work undertaken by Hertfordshire County Council and brings the results of previous studies into one volume.  The Landscape Character Assessment identifies 30 individual and distinct character areas across Welwyn Hatfield. The boundaries of the Landscape Character Areas are shown on the Proposals Map which accompanies the District Plan.
