This page links to the microsite that houses the Database of Landscape Character Assessments (LCAs) in England.
The database has been set up to provide an ongoing record of LCA information. It is designed to be updated and maintained by the LCA community as a valuable resource for use in landscape planning and policy, development control, sensitivity and capacity studies, biodiversity action planning, urban design and targeting agri-environment schemes, amongst other applications.
This database contains both map and text-based search facilities, allowing users to explore the extent of LCA coverage across the whole of England.
Natural England does not necessarily endorse the LCAs mentioned, their content or the approach taken, by listing them within the database.
Records entered before 11 November 2010 are held on the National Archive LCA Database. Please use the clickable regional listings to search for a Character Area.
Landscape Character Assessments (LCA) in England records added and updated after 11 November 2010 please refer to the relevant Local Authority website. For further advice contact LCN.Enquiries@naturalengland.org.uk
Please note this is not an exhaustive list, the onus is on the LCA community to provide this information, all LCAs are held on the relevant local authority website.
