5.18.24 Open-cast coal mining in this landscape type may provide an opportunity to re-utilise an d restore old railway lines instead of using road haulage. Equally, it is possible that the removal or gradual loss of disused railway lines and associated structures will occur.

This could diminish the heritage interest of the landscape and preclude their futur e reinstatement as communication routes.

5.18.25 As noted above, major elements of transport infrastructure, particularly roads, can hav e a significant visual and landscape impact within the open areas of Plateau Moorland.

Landscape planning and management should :

• ensure that new elements of infrastructure are designed to make maximum use o f natural landform screening, and that, where appropriate, additional planting i s provided to give screening and integration into the wider landscape ;

• minimise the use of tall, vertical elements such as lights, signs, and overhead sign s which could be intrusive features in the plateau landscape ;

• within the wider road network, the incremental use of urban features such as signage, road markings and concrete kerbing should be resisted.

Development: sensitivities and forces for chang e 5.18.26 This landscape type is relatively free from other forms of built development. In places, however, housing (e.g. near Newton Mearns) and light industrial development (e.g. nea r Newhouse) threatens to encroach onto the lower fringes of the moors. The open nature of these areas means that this landscape type would be very sensitive to suc h development. Many villages have also experienced incremental growth.

5.18.27 These moorlands already accommodate tall structures such as masts and pylons.

These are often visible over a considerable distance. Parts of the moorlands betwee n the Clyde Basin and the Ayrshire Basin fail into the Preferred and Intermediate Areas fo r wind farms identified in the Strathclyde structure plan (Strathclyde Regional Council, 1995b). Given the open, horizontal and apparently wild character of these areas, th e landscape would be sensitive to the concentration of wind farm development in this area.

This would be particularly the case where cumulative impacts occurred or where th e intrinsic undeveloped upland character was weakened.

Development: planning and management guideline s 5.18.28 Guidelines for this landscape type are as follows :

• discourage the encroachment of development into these otherwise unsettled areas ;

• discourage the erection of additional masts or other tall structures within the hills ;

• encourage operators to share infrastructure with the aim of minimising the number o f masts that are needed;

• steer any new masts to sites where the landscape and visual impact is minimised ;

• minimise the requirement for ancillary developments such as service roads o r servicing buildings ;


• wind energy developments in this area should be very carefully sited so as to minimise the visual and landscape impacts ; where possible, developments should b e located away from prominent ridgelines and skylines provided with a degree o f backclothing ; the open character of the landscape means that the potential t o accommodate several wind power developments is likely to be limited ; potentia l cumulative and sequential effects should be taken into account.
