POLICY QL21 - Landscaping

  1. The landscaping aspects of a development proposal will be required to form an integral part of the design. Landscaping schemes will be required to be submitted with all detailed planning applications and will need to ensure that development integrates appropriately into its surroundings and reflects local character. It will:
    1. take account of the existing character and features of the particular site and its wider landscape character;
    2. protect and retain existing trees, hedgerows and other landscape features worthy ofretention;
    3. ensure that traditional boundary features are retained, reinstated or introduced wherever appropriate in order to minimise visual intrusion on neighbouring uses or thecountryside;
    4. reflect local character in terms of choice of indigenous species of local provenance, materials, layout and potential for habitat creation; and
    5. make satisfactory provision for adequate maintenance and long term management of the scheme.
  2. Landscaping works should be undertaken during development or as soon as practicable thereafter. In the case of major proposals, consideration should be given to advanced landscaping works being carried out before building or enabling works are commenced.
