POLICY 16 - LANDSCAPING IN NEW DEVELOPMENT

16.1 The Council will require all development proposals which involve new build or re-build to include a scheme of landscaping sympathetic to the site’s character and vicinity.

16.2 In particular, new development should make use of, and provide for the retention (and repair) of existing trees, dry stone walls, hedgerows, ponds, watercourses and other semi-natural habitats. New boundaries at the edge of a settlement or in the open countryside must be created of dry stone walling or native species hedgerow, whichever is appropriate. The provision of new ecological habitats such as ponds, within landscaping schemes, will be encouraged, provided that they are appropriate to the development site.

16.3 Planning conditions may be used to ensure the successful implementation of the landscaping scheme.
