Landscape Connections and Perceptions — A Cornish Pilot Study

Fiona Fyfe Associates with Plymouth University (2015)

This European Social Fund project is being undertaken with Plymouth University. It is a research-based pilot project based in four contrasting landscapes around Cornwall. The aims of the project are:

  • To ascertain differences in how rural landscapes are perceived within the rural landscapes themselves and in neighbouring towns.
  • To understand the barriers which prevent residents accessing local landscapes.
  • To make recommendations on how these barriers can be overcome to create positive social and health benefits.
  • To investigate differences in people’s perceptions of different landscape types.
  • To find the locations of people’s favourite views, and why they are popular.
