This series consists of registered files of the Planning Sport and Countryside Directorate of the Department of the Environment, concerning countryside policy, including planning advice relating to coast and countryside.

The series contains some files which were re-registered into the PSC series from earlier file series. The earliest of these date from the 1940s and were re-registered from the Ministry of Housing and Local Government C series (HLG 140), some of which had been re-registered from that ministry's P series (HLG 131), or the L/ON series (MAF 235) of the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food.
The series also includes files from the earlier KA series (JH 1) and KD series (JH 3), and also other files re-registered into the PSC series from the KC series created by the Ministry of Land and Natural Resources (JH 8).
