Summary of indicator
To identify land zoned for environmental protection.
The built environment sits within a wider environmental context that is affected by human impacts. Natural systems can complement both movement and place, such as trees reducing urban heat, offering shade, and providing visual interest. Green infrastructure should be both preserved and repaired to build resilience and promote sustainability and assist in the protection of native flora and fauna and other ecological processes.
This indicator will support practitioners to understand where land has been zoned for environmental protection. Based on the outcome of the assessment, practitioners can determine whether more consideration could be given to promote and safeguard biodiversity by preserving local habitat and ecology.
Practitioners can use the land and wetland zoned for environmental protection metric to identify areas under environmental protection.
