Why Have an Environmental Planning Survey?

Tim Graham

If you want to build on natural areas of land, then your work could have a negative impact on the local environment, wildlife and ecosystem. Before you start planning in earnest, it pays to hire specialist land surveyors to run an environmental planning survey on the plot and its surrounding area.

What are the advantages of commissioning this kind of survey?

Know How to Make Your Plans Compliant

The area in which you want to build might have local building restrictions on it. In some cases, certain areas of land are protected by law. Plus, some states and local councils put restrictions on types of buildings and how they might impact the local environment.

A local land surveyor helps you negotiate the planning process from an environmental perspective. They tell you what you can and cannot do on the plot. They help you create acceptable plans which won't fall foul of planning departments. Your plans are more accurate, and your chances of approval increase with this expert help.

Reduce Your Impact on the Environment

If you don't factor in the environment in which you build, then you could do more harm than good. Your project might affect local trees, plants and wildlife. For example, changing the direction or flow of nearby rivers could endanger local animals, fish or insects.

If you want your company to build or maintain an environmentally responsible reputation, then you have to think about the impact of the build in this context. An environmental planning survey tells you more about the plot and its ecosystem.

Learn about any negative impacts your build might have. You can then mitigate against doing any harm by adapting your plans or making good on any damage you can't help but cause. You can be confident that your project will have the lowest possible negative impact on the environment.

Create a More Sustainable Build

Environmental planning surveyors don't just focus on how your build will affect the land. They can also help you create more sustainable builds. While you might not need any help on constructing greener buildings, they can give you advice on how to make the best use of the area to create sustainable water, power and waste systems. This help doesn't just ensure that you build more sustainable properties, it could also streamline your plans and save you money.

Hello! My name is Richard and this is my new blog. On this blog, I hope to pass on some useful information about how to work with contractors. I recently decided that I wanted to give my property a complete overhaul. I wanted to have a new roof installed, the interior remodelled and the driveway repaired. I asked around and I put together a great team of contractors who could all work together to get the job done. However, that isn't to say there wasn't the occasion challenge during such a big project. I learnt a lot from the experience and I am really pleased with the work that the contractors carried out.
