Regional Planning | State-level Planning
Regional Planning and Regional Development Concepts
Regional Planning and Regional Development Concepts are crosscommunity plans, that guide the development of a determined area at long sight, regarding various aspects, such as demography and housing, land-use and environment or transportation and communication services. Within the administrative system, regional planning can be located between state-wide and local planning
Concerning location, scenic, ecological and recreational aspects of urban and rural land use ranging from site surveys to the ecological assessment of broad areas for planning or management purposes. Our work includes masterplanning for new developments, landscape evaluations and assessments, and preparing countryside management or policy plans.
Environmental Impact Assessment | Spatial Compatibility Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment evaluates probable environmental impacts of certain, predefined developments suggests how to reduce the severity of the estimated impact. EIA can be required, for example, in the course of projects dealing with railways and roads, power industry, mining or water supply and distribution.
Spatial Compatibility Assessment
Spatial Compatibility Assessment is supposed to examine the effects of major projects on existing settlements, transportation systems, cultural assets or the environment. Possible synergies or conflicts with already implemented projects, impacts on the regional econ-omy and the project’s feasibility are as well to be studied.

Land Use Schemes and Built-Up Plans
Land Use Schemes are documents which are set up by the local community authority in order to give precise information on how a determined property may be used, considering the aims of state-wide, regional and local planning documents. Each parcel is assigned to one out of three major categories – building land, space used for transportation and grass-land. Built-Up Plans are made for those parts of a community, which are designated for building. They give, for instance, detailed information on the maximum of area to be covered by a building or the possible height of a building structure.
Investigations and Concepts for Town Planning
Urbanistic surveys and inventories are intended to provide a basis for subsequent analyses of possible development strategies in predetermined neighbourhoods or city districts.
