A landscape’s capacity to absorb new development, without exhibiting a significant alteration of character or change of appearance is referred to as it’s ‘sensitivity’. This depends on factors such as elevation, slope, as well as the types of land-cover and soil. Landscape sensitivity increases when one or more of these factors occur in the same place. e.g. development on a steep heather-covered elevated site on shallow soils is highly likely to be visually prominent over a wide area Arising from this analysis the following Sensitivity Ratings have been defined.Class 1 – LowClass 2 – HighClass 3 – SpecialClass 4 – IconicGalway County Council provides this information with the understanding that it is not guaranteed to be accurate, correct, or complete.
