The environmental strategy is one of the six new instruments introduced by the Environment and Planning Act. The strategy replaces the current structure vision, which we know in the Spatial Planning Act. In the environmental strategy, governments can lay down and implement their policy-making in the area of the physical living environment. Chapter 3 of the Environment and Planning Act provides for the possibility and sometimes even an obligation to adopt an environmental strategy. The power to do so not only exist at municipal level, but also at national and provincial level. This blog post provides further insights in the environmental strategy and it’s creation and the legal protection.
