“The project carried out on our territory allowed us to obtain concrete solutions in response to the demands of citizens, who are looking for more than just a city in which to reside, but an environment in which it is good to live and where the development of the territory, built heritage and the beauty of the landscapes occupy an important place.”

Jean-Claude Boyer, mayor of Saint-Constant

“We are proud of this collaboration, which has been an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to territorial planning that respects current social and environmental issues. This guide offers a pragmatic and inspiring vision to meet the challenges of urban densification, active mobility, preservation of natural environments and multifunctional agricultural development.”

Christian Ouellette, prefect of the MRC of Roussillon and mayor of Delson

“Listing landscape sensitivities greatly enriches the analysis of planning issues and the potential for sustainable transition of territories. This also reveals collective values ​​and aspirations likely to shed light on the quest for quality and social acceptability of projects. In short, placing collective development of the landscape at the heart of territorial planning approaches is the guarantee of innovative solutions for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
