Landscape Inventory

This landscape study is a stocktake of our district's landscape and its defining characteristics.

It updates the information in the Palmerston North Landscape Study (2008). This earlier study was commissioned to provide baseline information about the city's landscape to guide the review of the rural zone and the development of future policy options to achieve the sustainable management of Palmerston North's rural land resources.
