  • Landscape Conservation for Informal Public Recreation
    • Landscape Enhancement
      • Recreation and development of countryside features
      • Examples = planting woodland, restoring river meaders
    • Landscape Protection
      • Maintaining natural/man-made features that give countryside character e.g. ponds, stone walls, hedgerows
      • Some features need active management to contract ecological succession
      • Some features need to be protected by preventing damaging activities
    • Visitor Management
      • Creating paths, car parks, information centres and recreation facilities
      • Usually use traditional designs and local materials
      • Aim to keep visitors away from wildlife sensitive areas (honeypot sites)
