  • Ecology & Conservation: Collect, map & analyze ecological background data from various resources; Identify habitats, rare & endemic species, regional & local eco-corridors; Analyze potential threats – crossing infrastructure, adjacent development, invasive species, habitat loss; Prepare a detailed Ecology & Conservation Management Plan.

 

  • Heritage & Cultural Management: analyze historic & cultural significance; Identify & map historic, cultural & spiritual points of interest; Prepare guidelines for protection of specific views & visual basins; Programmatic & conceptual design for the integration of historic sites, monuments and shrines within the landscape.

 

  • Production, Infrastructure & Resources Management: Analyze the potential impacts of commercial activities and linear infrastructure (Roads, Utilities etc.) on the landscape; Identify, map & plan Infrastructure Corridors; Prepare mitigation guidelines for commercial & infrastructure operations on public land.

  • Public Participation & Consultation: Integrate public opinion into regional and landscape planning, through information & consultation sessions. Integrate inputs from planners, government officials, academics and the general public to create better, inclusive public open spaces.
