Wrexham Council homepage



This page provides information about LANDMAP, which stands for Landscape Assessment and Decision Making Process, and evaluates Earth Science, Biodiversity, Visual and Sensory, History & Archaeology and Culture.

Wrexham LANDMAP is part of an all-Wales initiative developed by the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) and the Welsh Landscape Partnership Group. The study covers aspects of Earth Science, Biodiversity, Visual and Sensory, History & Archaeology and Culture, and evaluates them. This has allowed recognisable landscape character areas to be identified, and recommendations made to manage and enhance the rich the varied landscape heritage in an appropriate way for the future.

This provides a consolidated and simplified version of the Wrexham LANDMAP 2004, which it supersedes, in all but the evaluation scores for each aspect and background to the LANDMAP process. Guidance on how to use LANDMAP in preparing planning applications is also provided.
