Policy E2 of the proposed LDP 2016 commits to the publication of supplementary guidance which detail the boundaries and qualifying interests of Special Landscape Areas across Aberdeenshire. Following an extensive analysis undertaken by Land Use Consultants (LUC) a series of candidate Special Protection Areas have been identified and draft supplementary guidance developed.

We are keen to receive your views on the Special Landscape Areas as shown in the following document:

Supplementary Guidance No. 9 Special Landscape Areas (PDF 9.7MB)

Consultation on this document is open until 13 May 2016 and a response form has been provided to assist your submission

A series of short films have been prepared to assist with your understanding of the supplementary guidance, and the nature of the areas identified as Special Landscapes:
