URGENT: Special Landscape Area Consultation

East Lothian Council is carrying out a review of its landscapes with a view to designating Special Landscape Areas. These landscapes will then be given protection through the policies of the East Lothian Local Development Plan.

This is your opportunity to suggest beauty spots, natural places, viewpoints and landscapes that you consider special or have particular importance, to be considered for designation as Special Landscape Areas.

This important consultation closes on Sunday 1st March!

You can submit your suggestions via a short survey which include the following questions:

Where do you think the best views in East Lothian are?

Which areas of East Lothian do you think are special and why?

You will be able to upload up to three supporting photographs or other documents (Word, JPEG, bitmap or PDF files only).

There is an additional question: Are there any areas that need landscape improvement, and what would need to be done to improve the landscape/area? (included for reference – no improvements are planned).

You can also email photographs and other documents to landscape@eastlothian.gov.uk
