STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT IN TRANSPORT AND LAND USE PLANNING

Thomas B Fischer

  • First comparative analysis of transport and land use planning using strategic environmental assessment (SEA)
  • Shows how much can be achieved through systematic application of SEA
  • Invaluable for urban, regional and national planning and environmental impact assessment

DESCRIPTION

Assessing the full scale of environmental impacts is essential for effective planning of transport and land use. This is the first book to establish the effectiveness of SEA through comparative analysis of practice in three countries: Britain, The Netherlands and Germany. The author shows that use of SEA is widespread but far from systematic. He demonstrates the advantages of adopting a systematic application of a comprehensive form of SEA derived from all the major current approaches. Only once this approach is fully understood and systematically applied will the full benefits be achieved and environmental impacts minimized.

Essential reading for all those involved in planning, transport and different forms of land use, and in environmental impact assessment.
