Winchfield Parish Council commissioned Michelle Bolger Expert Landscape Consultancy to identify and describe Key Views within Winchfield Parish as part of the evidence base for the emerging Neighbourhood Plan review. This study follows on from the Winchfield Landscape Character Assessment, 2022, which provides a detailed description of the Parish landscape and has been used to inform evaluated judgements within the report.
Landscape qualities are characteristics of the landscape that are valued. A Key View is defined as a view which allows Winchfield’s landscape qualities to be easily appreciated. Each represents an experience. The characteristics of the landscape contribute significantly and positively to the distinctive character and sense of place of the Parish. The views are all from publicly accessible locations.
The report, which has been updated following comments received during the Regulation 14 public consultation, is attached below.
