Careful planning is essential to ensure sustainable management of both aquatic and terrestrial environments. This unit covers the principles of environmental protection as achieved through the planning process with particular emphasis on regional planning for offshore and coastal marine environments and links to catchments. Key topics in the unit include strategic planning, statutory planning and environmental impact assessment. The unit will provide a foundation in environmental planning by introducing students to planning legislation, government planning responsibilities, planning procedures and public participation. Through the use of local case studies the unit is designed to provide real world application of planning for environmental protection. Environmental planning techniques, such as environmental impact assessments, will be examined and skills in using these techniques will be developed.
