PPS 7 is clear in paragraph 25 that "local landscape designations should only be maintained or extended where it can be clearly shown that criteria-based planning policies cannot provide the necessary protection. When reviewing their local area-wide development plans planning authorities should rigorously consider the justification for retaining existing local landscape designations. They should ensure that such designations are based on a formal and robust assessment of the qualities of the landscape concerned."
