Land Use Constraints Data


Areas that are deemed to be of natural importance have restrictions that may limit the extent and type of property development that can take place. Knowing the type and location of these designated areas is important during the planning process.

The Land Use Constraints Data includes:

  • Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
  • Special Areas of Conservation (SAC)
  • Special Protection Areas (SPA)
  • Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)
  • Ramsar Sites
  • National Nature Reserves (NNR)
  • Local Nature Reserves (LNR)
  • National Parks
  • Ancient Woodland
  • Country Parks
  • Historic Parks, Gardens and Designed Landscapes
  • Public Rights of Way and Other Public Access Routes
