ENVIRONMENTAL ZONING RESTRICTIONS ON PORT ACTIVITIES AND DEVELOPMENT

The need for expansion of landside port facilities is eminent, given the increased cargo volumes. Ports are facing a dilemma that could cause serious damage to their futures. Environmental policy is the culprit. Since the early 1970s, Europe has been crusading environmentally to protect habitats and species of wildlife. The creation of "environmental zones" to protect these areas are spreading quickly along the coastlines and waterways where ports are located and in need of development to handle increased cargo volumes. To develop an understanding of the potential impact of environmental zoning on the future of ports, this paper examines the facts and legislation supporting this environmental crusade.
