Landscapes For Everyone

The National Hedgelaying Society have joined a consortium of organisations with a shared vision of why our unique British landscapes should be better valued for the benefit of current and future generations and what Government action is needed to achieve this.

Landscape is more than just a view. Landscape is everywhere. Our diverse landscapes are hugely important to the nation’s health and wellbeing, making a significant contribution to the economy through tourism and farming or simply providing attractive places for people to live, work and play. They are also nature’s home.

With increasing pressure for housing, transport and infrastructure, it is more important than ever that Government policy, funding and legislation recognise the enormous contribution that distinctive, beautiful, characterful and cared for landscapes make to the nation.

The consortium asks all political parties to recognise the importance of landscape to the well-being and quality of life of the nation by committing to: better landscapes for people, better planning for landscapes and better places for nature.
