Environmental studies

The purpose of environmental studies is to search for better solutions to the planning and design problems which face us. Better solutions are not necessarily cheaper or even more cost effective solutions, but ones which take into account the broad effects of our proposals on the whole surrounding environment. As a result, local environmental controls are viewed as an educational tool aimed at instilling an attitude of awareness towards community values and the environment, and a willingness to consult. Some examples of the application of government guidelines to environmental studies are given below. They illustrate the wide range of environmental study detail which can be required for different projects (a).
