Title: West Cornwall : action plan : January 1998
Author: Environment Agency South West Region Cornwall Area
Document Type: Monograph
This Action Plan set out the tasks that the Agency and others carried out over five years. The actions address problems that arise from the pressures on the environment, and seek new opportunities to enhance it. West Cornwall includes some of the most distinctive, classic 'Cornish' landscapes. West Penwith is a treeless, exposed, ancient landscape, a product of the underlying granite, severe exposure to the Atlantic elements and a long agricultural history. The district is characterised by tracts of heathland, many of which are unenclosed, and small, irregularly-shaped fields bounded by Cornish hedges, many of which date from prehistoric times. Along the coast there are spectacular granitic rock formations.
