visual impact assessment

Landscape assessment identifies key landscape values to assist in the development of landscape management strategies and design guidelines for future development within a site. Strategies will provide developers and stakeholders with guidelines that will ensure the appropriate management of landscape character and the retention of key landscape values. The process involves integrating the visual, cultural, biophysical and landscape values. The outcome is a narrative that gives meaning to the landscape which can inform the design and can provide a link to the history of the site, plus ameliorates the visual impacts.

Changes to the landscape are difficult to visualise due to the complexity and scale of landscapes and the layers of information they contain. CAD and GIS image processing techniques have helped Ecoscape develop powerful methods of creating and assessing landscape visualisations to overcome this challenge. The use of 3D allows the viewer to see and understand the changes to a landscape from any angle.

Whiteman Park Conservation & Environment Management Plan

In 2015, the Department of Planning engaged Ecoscape to prepare a Conservation and Environment Management Plan for Whiteman Park.  Whiteman Park is one of the largest recreation and conservation parks in the Perth Metropolitan region covering an area of 4,124 hectares of which 2,200 hectares are protected under the Bush Forever Act, 150 hectares are used for recreation and 200 hectares for horse riding (WAPC 2015). 

The purpose of the Conservation and Environment Management Plan (CEMP) was to provide a strategic plan for the management of the Park’s natural environment.  The plan aims to support current management initiatives and also identify areas of conservation value that require ongoing management to ensure these values are preserved and enhanced and that planned development considers these values.  The objectives of the plan were to:

  • provide an overview of the Park’s existing natural environment
  • provide an overview of the Park’s existing management strategies
  • identify challenges to the environmental management of the park
  • identify the conservation values of the Park and illustrate these on a plan that identifies priority areas for management.

Strategic level recommendations were identified to address the challenges to the environmental management of the Park. Management Zones were identified for the purpose of providing a framework that is practical to follow for on ground staff.  The management recommendations equally aim to support the priorities identified in the Five Year Management Plan.

environmental management

Environmental management aims to ensure that ecosystem services are protected and maintained for future generations, and to ensure ecosystem integrity through the consideration of social, economic, and ecological variables.  Our natural environment maintains important ecological systems and provides habitat for vegetation and fauna species.  Ecoscape aims to sustain a balance between the social, economic and conservation values.
