Zoning of potential landscape and environment potential of the «Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée Costières de Nîmes»

Abstract

The Union defence of the “appellation Costières de Nîmes” hired a reflection on the future of its territory production in the interests of preservation and enhancement. It has launched a study in partnership with the Urban Community Nîmes Métropole and DIREN Languedoc-Roussillon on the cultural and economic values that form the landscape and the environment. The work done in consultation with the players in the area led to the signing of a charter and environmental landscape. The map areas of potential landscape and environment of the “A.O.C. Costières de Nîmes” was one of the first objectives of the charter. This map identifies on the basis of a typology: 
– land of excellence; 
– land under urban influence; 
– land who have lost their agricultural or urban lands. 
This card is an information paper to the actors and agencies territory “Costières” (elected… communities). It aims to take better account of the added production that make up the landscape and the environment. For each type identified, management guidance and support are available to maintain, preserve and enhance the attractiveness of the quality of life, economic strength and promotional landscape and the environment (viewpoints, axes discovery … viticultural landscape). These proposals are intended to ensure a balanced economic development of the territory of appellation. They come in 34 actions included in the charter and environmental landscape of the “appellation Costières de Nîmes”.
