Ecological Constraints Analysis

BAAM’s constraints analysis methodology combines analysis of existing ecological data and ground-truthing observations with current regulatory guidelines to soundly guide the ecological components of the development application process.

Prior to purchasing a parcel of land intended for future residential or industrial development or before formalising design plans for a development constraints analysis is often undertaken to gain an understanding of any environmental constraints that may influence the development opportunities of the site (due diligence). 

The ecological constraints that influence development location and design may be associated with the presence of threatened flora or fauna species, threatened vegetation communities or significant habitats under Commonwealth, State or Local government legislation and planning policies.

A key format for communicating the currently recognised ecological values is the mapping of existing ecological features and their associated significance under relevant statutes (constraints mapping). A constraints map can often be produced from a desktop assessment, which provides a quick and cost-efficient means by which potential conflicts and opportunities for a proposed development site can be identified.

BAAM utilises spatial data analysis and ground-truthed observations to develop mapping for constraints analysis that highlights significant ecological values within the site to facilitate site planning and reduce risks to the project that may be caused by costly delays later in the process.
