Management Plan 2023-24
School Of Natural Sciences
Module - Semester 1
The module is based on an assessment of an existing site to answer a specific question or series of questions related to the area's land use. Students will be provided with background information and will have opportunities to visit the locations. Using this information plus other relevant physical, biological, technical, economic and spatial data, a management plan / strategy document will be prepared. Students will be provided with a detailed brief that defines the scope of the planning assignment and the outcomes. Tutorial support will be provided to address technical issues as they arise.
- Be aware of legal constraints and appropriate land law.
- Be familiar with EU / Welsh Government policy and legislation, the policies of statutory bodies plus other relevant organisations regarding the component land uses / designations / management agreements found within the case-study site.
- Have completed a management plan / strategy document for the study site incorporating appropriate technical and financial data where required, using relevant evaluative, modelling and visualisation techniques (e.g. GIS).
- Have gathered relevant biophysical, technical and economic/socio-economic and spatial data to allow an appraisal of the site.
