Capabilities: Strategic Environmental Planning Advice

Environment North has been providing strategic environmental planning advice to government and industry for 20 years. Our detailed working knowledge of environmental management, planning principles and legislation assists developers, government and industry with making sound decisions on proposals that are sustainable and address competing requirements.

Our extensive industry experience is frequently called upon to inform government and policy makers on strategic environmental issues. Likewise, our extensive policy and legislation knowledge is often called upon by industry to develop solutions that satisfy regulatory requirements whilst still providing opportunities for development.

Some examples of projects where Environment North provided biodiversity conservation and natural resource management inputs are:

  • State Highway Corridor Link Studies
  • Cape York Peninsula Land Use Strategy Stages 1 and 2,
  • Gulf Regional Development Plan,
  • Multiple Use Strategic Plan for the Southern Gulf of Carpentaria,
  • Threshold Sustainability Analysis for the FNQ 2010 Regional Plan, and
  • Biodiversity Strategy and Code for the former Thuringowa Shire Council.
