Borough Landscape Character Assessment

Tunbridge Wells are developing their new Local Plan which will released for consultation in May.  Tunbridge Wells Borough Landscape Character Assessment 2017 has recently been published and is one of the cornerstones of the new plan.

This document updates the document  first published in 2002.

For each of our areas (Kilndown and Goudhurst) it provides a summary of each area and identifies

  • Summary of each area
  • Valued Features and Qualities,
  • Detractors and Opportunities
  • Landscape Strategy.

Interestingly HGV’s and Leylandii are seen as detractors !
