Sustainable Spatial Development

Compensation Management (1998)

The Chair of Landscape Ecology and Landscape Planning conducts a project financed by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt 'Compensation Management as a Contribution to Future-Oriented Local Environmental Planning'. The aim of the project is the development of tools and methods for in a conceptual and effective way dealing with compensation measures legally required in the case of large interventions into natural habitats at the local level using the city of Dortmund as a case study. According to nature-protection and building legislation, negative impacts on nature and landscape are to be offset by compensation and substitution measures enhancing landscape quality. New or pending legislation such as the new Building and Spatial Development Law and the Nature Protection Law increasingly offer the possibility to plan compensation and substitution measures no longer more or less randomly but to utilise them for a targeted optimisation of landscape development.
