The SPG involves a Green Infrastructure based design approach to the landscape and demonstrates how this approach contributes to creating high quality, attractive and sustainable places. It assists the Council in managing the scale and nature of landscape change posed by development and promotes high standards of design to ensure that new developments are well integrated into the surrounding area.
FCA led a multidisciplinary team in researching and producing this SPG. It guides those involved with development through the planning and design process as it relates to landscape, with particular reference to protecting and enhancing the sense of place and local character inherent in the 15 Landscape Character Areas and 5 Urban Areas within Bridgend County Borough.
