Landscape Character Assessment

A Landscape Character Assessment is the process of identifying and describing variation in character of the landscape.

The Landscape Character Assessment document identifies and explains the unique combination of elements and features that make the Horsham District landscape distinctive by mapping and describing character types and areas. It also shows how the landscape is perceived, experienced and valued by people.

The latest Landscape Character Assessment was carried out in 2003 and can be downloaded below.
