Communities and landscape

Communities can help to inform choices about landscape change, and carry out projects to celebrate and enhance their local area.

People's views and perceptions about landscapes are an essential part of efforts to look after them. This is supported by the principles of the European Landscape Convention, which puts people at the heart of landscape.

Policy makers such as Scottish Natural Heritage, and decision makers such as local authorities, need to understand how we relate to our surroundings, and what we value about them.
