Historic Landscape Characterisation (HLC)

Characterisation of rural landscapes and urban townscapes attempts to bring together historic and contemporary aspects of a place to help understand and appreciate it better. It provides information for individuals, communities, planners and developers.

The York HER benefits from 2 characterisation studies, the North Yorkshire HER (2005 to 2010) and York Historic Environment Characterisation Project (2012 to 2013).
