Disaster management
This scenario covers a village developing initiatives to preserve and build on its local character.

With changes in traditional agricultural practices, many villages suffer from either development pressure or loss of population. Often political control is exercised many miles away and local people feel powerless to do anything about it.

In this scenario parish mapping is used to generate interest and understanding. Villagers then decide to develop a local design statement to guide new development and a countryside design summary is prepared to make better links with the character of the surrounding region.

Finally, with the experience of learning to work together, a number of project groups are established to develop new facilities.
