The biodiversity planning toolkit

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

The British Association of Local Government Ecologists (ALGE) has put on-line a very interesting tool for anyone interested in environmental issues related to planning in the UK. The biodiversity planning toolkit provides user-friendly information on several important points including:

  • Fundamental Considerations
  • Law / Policy / Practice, including primary legislation and statutory regulaions
  • Types of Development
  • Designations, key species, habitats and components of geodiversity
  • Forward Planning
  • The most interesting offer of the toolkit is the interactive landscape which lets the user navigate the different issues listed above in an attractive setting which is pretty much self-explanatory. The interactive landscape is very useful as a first introduction to the British planning regime and environmental regulations as well as all the key components of biodiversity, ecosystems and landscapes that are under consideration.

    Well done!
