Natural England is the government’s statutory advisor on landscape and has the remit to protect and improve landscape and seascape, to provide new and improved opportunities for access to the countryside, and to promote enjoyment of the natural environment for all. We work to ensure positive planning for rural areas, promoting development that respects the character of all landscapes and meets the needs of local communities.

In February 2007 Land Use Consultants were commissioned to undertake a study of potential landscape/seascape and visual impacts of a possible Severn Barrage between Lavernock Point (in Wales) and Brean Down (in England). This report presented information about the existing landscape, seascape and visual amenity of the area around the potential Severn Barrage and Severn Estuary, as well as potential key landscape/seascape and visual issues in relation to a barrage of this type.
