Landscape conditions may be imposed on a development by a Local authority. These conditions will include issues considered to be important and which have been highlighted while reviewing the planning of development in a particular landscape. They include both the internal and external conditions of a landscape. The internal conditions include the form, texture and constituents of soil, tree cover, field pattern and all the other elements and their presence within the landscape. External conditions refer to the particular location of a landscape, its surroundings and possible ways in which the land can be modified for a particular type of development. The assessment of landscaping conditions is a first step in the set of techniques that planners will request landscape designers use, when they look at how a development will sit in a landscape and how to mitigate its effect on the landscape.
Before starting any sort of planning for a landscape one thing that is to be kept in mind is that there should be a balance kept between the benefits of economic development for society and the need of an eco-friendly environment for people to live in. Every country has numerous landscape planning systems for both the rural and urban landscapes. Urban park, green lanes and landscape planning are all part of the urban landscape planning system; while in most rural areas, major landscape planning will heal up damage done to landscapes as a result of certain man-made developmental activities like the unplanned cutting of trees.
Nature has given us beautiful and fascinating landscapes. Governments have done a lot to enhance their beauty through landscape planning, by hiring professionals for this purpose. This is why when you move into a country you see that everything looks great and looks best suited to a particular place.
Permission in landscape planning is important when doing any kind of modification in the landscape. A planning application along with the provision of details of all the modifications that are to be made as a part of the development to be approved by the relevant officials is required in most cases. Landscape planning is highly beneficial to society; it can be used to identify hazards or troublesome effects of developments on their surroundings, plus ways to minimise these to safeguard the landscape. Thus, planning permission is as important as the rest of the landscape designer’s work and proper understanding and counselling must be undertaken before submitting a planning application.
