A Conservation Strategy for Sustaining the CulturalSignificance of Rural Landscapes

A Conservation Strategy for Sustaining the CulturalSignificance of Rural Landscapes

This research responds to Quebec s call to new waysof thinking in land use planning to conserve the culturalsignificance of its rural landscapes. Based on guidance andapproaches of the United Kingdom (UK), including historic landscapecharacterisation, a conservation strategy is developed and appliedto the study site of Saint-Donat, Quebec. The story of theSaint-Donat landscape is told through historical narrative, GISmapping and analysis both in time-slice and time-depth, andphotographic images, which reveal values attributable to thelandscape. Demonstration of how landscape policies and land useplanning of Saint-Donat are informed to sustain these values isprovided through application to two historic landscape characterareas: the village and a mountainous recreational area. Thisresearch contributes to Canadian, Quebec and UK aims to develop acomprehensive conservation strategy for conserving culturallandscapes. Future research is needed to expand our understandingof how and why people value landscapes and the role values play inmanaging landscape change and landscapesustainability.
