Landscapes 3

Landscapes3 will replace Landscapes2 as the official Chester County Comprehensive Policy Plan. As part of the process, topical trend reports were created. Click here to view the Agriculture and all other topical trend reports.


Landscapes2 is Chester County's comprehensive policy plan. It establishes growth management and preservation strategies to guide municipalities, developers, preservationists, and others in making decisions that promote sustainable practices and ensure that future residents have access to the same benefits that we currently enjoy.

The goal for agriculture is to promote environmentally and economically sustainable agriculture through which agricultural soils are conserved, agriculture is recognized as an economically viable land use, and the industry of farming is encouraged at an appropriate scale throughout the county.
