ECOPHYSIOGRAPHIC STUDIES

The ecophysiographic study is prepared for the purposes of the Study of conditions and directions of spatial development or a local spatial development plan. The study defines the individual natural components together with their connections, also specifying possible investment activities in the municipality. It is the basis for assessing the impact of the planning document assumptions on the natural and human environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT FORECASTS FOR SCDSD AND LSDP PROJECTS

The environmental impact forecast is one of the components of the strategic environmental impact assessment and an essential (required by the provisions of the Spatial Planning and Development Act) component of the planning procedure of the aforementioned local law acts. Its objective is to present the forecast effects of the planning study implementation (LSDP and SCDSD) on the environment and human health. It allows for the assessment of the measures adopted for the implementation of environmental protection and the analysis of whether there are alternative solutions to forecast activities.

STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

The environmental impact assessment is one of the basic legal instruments of environmental protection. Strategic environmental assessments are carried out in relation to the concept of country development, regional development strategies, spatial development projects and a range of other strategies, projects, programmes and policies.

LEGAL EXPERTISE IN THE FIELD OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

The legal expertise the obligation of which does not arise directly from the applicable law, allows for the selection of the best solutions in the field of environmental protection, acoustic norms, or allows for checking the most advantageous locations for investments that may have an impact on the environment. It allows to avoid many social conflicts during the preparation of planning documents and helps in adjusting investor activities to the natural conditions of the entire municipality or local natural enclave.

GREENERY INVENTORIES

Such inventory is necessary for any investment the impact of which impact includes expansion into green areas. The form of greenery is irrelevant here: protected or not – any greenery is valuable and worth protecting for the local community. The greenery inventory is one of the most important components of a full environmental assessment. The inventory determines the type of biodiversity existing in the area of the study and assesses its condition.
