Our Landscapes – your future?

During this period of enormous change, our message to Welsh Government is...

"Wales’ landscapes are some of our nation's most important assets and must be safeguarded.Sustainable development won’t work if our landscapes are squandered."

Maintaining the character and quality of Welsh landscapes and seascapes provides the architecture to guide sensible change.

High standards of design, sensitivity, responsible use and reduced clutter are the hallmarks of a prosperous and vibrant countryside.

These issues and the consequences of rural deprivation must be addressed now.

 

 We can’t afford to leave these matters to chance!

national parks matter.pngOur work with Protected Landscapes

Recently concern about how our iconic landscapes are administered have been voiced.
We believe like others that dedicated organisations with the relevant skills and expertise are still required to ensure our National Parks and AONBs remain very special.

Issues affecting your area?

Across Wales, the voluntary members of our 14 local Branches work relentlessly to protect the landscapes of their local areas.

They respond to development proposals in their areas and promote good landscape management practices.
Where and when development is unsympathetic or insensitive they oppose it.  imagesCAEXL4TF good design.jpg
