|ROSCOMMON LANDSCAPE CHARACTER AND SENSITIVITY ASSESSMENT|
This county wide assessment was prepared in 2007 and involved the identification of 7 landscape character types and 36 landscape character areas, the latter of which were each classified on a four point scale of landscape value.
The assessment involved a number of focus group consultation meetings, an assessment of historical landscape character and detailed mapping in GIS. In addition, Scenic Routes and Views were reassessed and mapped. A full description of each landscape character area was developed, along with identifying forces of change and providing recommendations in terms of planning policy.
