Surrey Landscape Character Assessment

Landscape character assessment (LCA) is a technique for analysing elements in the landscape and understanding the way they combine to make one character area different from another.

Surrey County Council undertook a Landscape Character Assessment across the County in 2015. There is a dedicated chapter in the LCA which relates to Runnymede and this chapter and its supporting documentation can be viewed below:
