An Area of Great Landscape Value (AGLV) is an area of land in England which is considered to have a particular scenic value, and is therefore afforded a degree of protection by local authorities. The designation was established under the Town and Country Planning Act 1947. If an area is designated as an AGLV, this restricts development in the area, especially if it will affect the distinctive character or quality of the landscape.[1]
