There is a growing concern at the capacity of both Impact Assessment (IA) and land use planning processes to identify significant environmental values (both cultural and natural) and proffer means by which impacts on these from large scale development can be mitigated. Central to this is the recognition that the IA process is largely a reactive one, responding to each development in isolation. Thus, there is limited ability to assess the incremental and synergetic effects of developments on a region’s cultural heritage.
