  • Protect the landscapes produced by the Loire Valley's symbolic agricultural uses: vines, orchards and crop production, by limiting the spread of urban areas in particular.
  • Safeguard alluvial grasslands. Combine crop commodities and quality landscapes.
  • Endeavour to integrate farm buildings into their surrounding landscape.

Proposals for action

  • Protect farmland from periurban pressure in urban planning documents. Include rules concerning the construction, extension and renovation of farm buildings in urban planning documents.
  • Identify the most critically endangered agricultural sectors in the PLU landscape appraisal. Sustain them in the form of "greenbelts", and even establish Protected Agricultural Zones for the most vulnerable sectors.
  • Support the farming industry, particularly livestock rearing and operations to restore farmland hedges by introducing specific financial assistance.
  • Protect landscape structures when required by the situation: N zoning, Listed Wooded Areas, remarkable landscape features.
  • Promote the setup of Natura 2000 contracts to maintain alluvial grasslands.
