About the guidance

The new guide provides an overview of the impact of quarrying on the landscape and visual surroundings, as well as the associated assessment and mitigation strategies that can be utilised.

It explains the planning policy context, landscape and visual impact assessment, and the evolving and cumulative effects of quarrying operations.

The guide shows how unique geological, climatic, and human-influenced features affect the landscape and how these are identified at local, national, and international levels, for example as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
