The Department of Planning (DoP) engaged Ecoscape to undertake a visual landscape assessment of the Dongara to Cape Burney coastal region to develop strategies to manage visual landscape character. This assessment will be included in a coastal planning strategy which is being coordinated by the DoP. The strategy seeks to provide an improved system to strategically plan for development that ensures the consideration of the social and natural environment. Ecoscape conducted a desktop and site analysis of the landscape values in the region using analysis techniques in ArcGIS. Landscape architects at Ecoscape undertook a site assessment to identify site inspired design opportunities to develop design guidelines to guide future residential, tourist and recreation development. Ecoscape in conjunction with the DoP developed landscape management strategies and design guidelines for future development within the study area. The strategy will provide developers and stakeholders with guidelines that will ensure the appropriate management of landscape character and the retention of key landscape values.
