Brixham Urban Fringe Landscape Study

Brixham lies to the south and west of Torbay and is fringed by the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which forms a crescent around the town. The primary purpose of the AONB designation is the conservation of natural beauty and brings with it certain statutory responsibilities.

This study was commissioned by the South Devon AONB Unit working closely with Torbay Council and Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust to consider the landscape of the Brixham urban fringe and how the pressures for growth might be considered alongside the primary purpose of AONB designation.
