Landscape programme of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse

Programme paysage en Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse







Scope of application:



The landscape programme of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse arises from the people's increasing interest and commitment to preserve their landscapes (result of a public survey conducted in March and April 2006). In this sense, it sets out three great challenges: controlling how the local landscapes evolve, sharing and encouraging people to explore the landscape and preserving people's identity. The landscape programme establishes a series of objectives specified in recommendations related to the elements that shape the landscape (topography and water, plant and tree cover, lines of communication, cities and towns, landscapes within towns and built heritage). These recommendations are applied both throughout the area and in each town, where they are joined by recommendations for urban planning. Moreover, each town adapts the recommendations to its own action programme that is complemented with awareness-raising and participatory measures and actions. The high level of detail reached by the recommendations established in the landscape programme of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse makes them especially useful for urban planning.
