Abstract:

In line with recent developments, landscape is not only the object of scientifi c studies, but isalso being included in planning policy and practice. In association with this, a strong sense of landscapeas heritage emerges, though the precise meaning of this heritage is always contested. To address thisproblem, the work described here used the example of the relationship between designated landscapevalues and recently adopted development areas and axes to show and discuss the way in which landscapeheritage is polarized in terms of its value in today’s Czechia, as well as what that means for landscapeprotection.

Keywords: landscape heritage, areal preservation, landscape management, areal development, spatial planning, Czechia
