1. Compare the scale of the study with regards to area covered (sq km) with
your current Study area of Mahabalipuram. If you are asked to prepare a
similar report for Restrictions on High Rise Buildings (more than
18.3m), around your study area of Mahabalipuram, show the limit of
study area in an area map and draw the Landscape Capacity Study
Methodology flowchart for the same.

The area and Radius map of Angus study - 2,181km2

The study focuses on the local authority area of Angus for the purposes of
determining

Cumulative landscape and visual impact and landscape capacity.

IN MAHABALIPURAM:

 The total area of Mahabalipuram is 5.98 km²

 The Blue colour represent the major heritage monuments and the red
colour represent the minor heritage monuments. Therefore, the study area
focuses on the major heritage area which has a cultural value and visual
impact and landscape capacity.

2) State an area in Angus where Landscape Capacity for Wind farm was nil
and give 2 reasons for the same.

Significant areas of Angus have no underlying capacity for wind turbine


development.

1) All of the Highland Summits and Plateaux LCAs.

2) Some upper parts of Highland Glens and Highland Foothills which extend
into the Lochanagar and Mount Keen draft Core Area of Wild Land and are
contiguous with the Highland Summits and Plateaux.

3) Some prominent summits, viewpoints and hillforts in the Sidlaw Hills,


Highland Foothills and Low Moorland Hills.

REASONS:

 Due to their importance to the Angus landscape, connectivity with the


Cairngorms National Park, high visual prominence, high relative wildness
and recreational value;

 To protect their character, avoid widespread visibility, and protect key


viewpoints and features and particularly to protect the key feature of the
Highland Boundary Fault and its backdrop of the Grampian Mountains.

3) State an area in Angus where Landscape Capacity for Wind farm was
available and give 2 reasons for the same.
This is based on a combination of one or more factors including suitable
larger scale simple landforms and landscape patterns; existing
development/ land use affecting character; lower visual sensitivity and
lower landscape value. Not all of these factors are present in every area
identified and following should be followed.

Significant areas of Angus have areas with Highest Underlying Capacity

The main areas are:


1) Careston Broad Valley Lowland to the north west of Brechin.

2) Muir of Pert Broad Valley Lowland to the east of Brechin.

3) Montreathmont Forest and farmland to the south of Brechin.

4) The Sidlaw Hills with contiguous areas of Dipslope Farmland to the south
and east and Low Moorland Hills south of Forfar.

REASONS:

 They have the capacity to accommodate larger sizes of turbine and/or


greater numbers and concentrations relative to other areas of landscape in
Angus.

 They have suitable larger scale simple landforms and landscape patterns;
existing development/ land use affecting character; lower visual
sensitivity and lower landscape value.
