P. M. Venodha
Abstract—Ecology is more related to landscape planning in which public spaces around the future needs of a region is designed. Nature conservation sites receive protection through planning processes. There are also conservation policies, which are implemented through planning processes. Planning processes related to ecological assessments are considered as the best practice which requires planning permission to undertake construction projects. In terms of conserving nature, planning plays a significant role in creating traffic free routes, construction that is significant area of habitats, proposal on protected areas, proposal on protected species and habitats, landscape considerations, proposal to enhance ecology and in case done insensitively it will negative impacts on nature. Habitat survey is considered as the desk study to identify nature conservation sites, habitats along routes, record of notable and protected species. Habitat survey is helpful in order to plan project budgets and timeframe.
