Landscape Matters

In this section you can view the Authority’s Management Plan, which outlines the overarching strategy for the Park, and the Landscape and Seascape Character Assessments, which provide detailed information on the landscape sensitivity of each area of the National Park. You will also find information on landscaping, including trees and hedgerows.

The National Park Authority has a statutory duty to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Park.

The effective management of the unique landscape character of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, in line with this statutory duty, is therefore extremely important in all aspects of the Authority’s work.
