Transcript of PHYSICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS OF CONSTRUCTION.

Physical and environmental factors
Once the construction has been completed there may be longer
term impacts. A prime example would be building a new housing
development in an area that lacks good roads, sufficient schools or
access to health facilities. During the planning and development stage
these factors will be looked at to see what the knock-on effects might
be in the short and long term.
Physical and environmental factors
Environmental factors concern the impact that a construction project has on the natural environment. This would include any possible
impacts on trees and vegetation, wildlife and habitats. It can also have an impact on the air quality or noise levels in the area.
Development or land
restrictions
This is a complicated area, as there are often
many restrictions on building and the use of land.
One of the most complex is restrictive covenants, which are created in order to protect the
interests of neighbours. They might restrict the use of the land and the amount of building work
that can take place.
Physical factors and the planning process
Planning requirements
Thank you!
Physical and environmental factors
Physical factors relate to the impact that any new construction project will have on any existing structures and their occupants. Any new construction project is going to have a negative impact on home owners and businesses. There will be increased traffic on roads and a host of other considerations.
Use of building or
structure
Each building or structure will have a Use Class, such as ‘residential’, ‘shops’ or ‘businesses’.
Redeveloping an existing building and not changing the use to which it is put, for example
renovating a building from a butcher to a chemist, does not usually require planning permission.
However, changing from a bank to a bar would require planning permission. Certain uses, due to
their unique nature, do not fall into any particular Use Class and planning permission is always
required. A good example would be a nightclub or a casino.
PHYSICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS OF CONSTRUCTION.
Building design and
footprint
The footprint is the physical amount of space or area that the proposed
development takes up on a given plot of land. There may be limits as to
the size of this footprint. In terms of building design, certain areas may
have restrictions as the local authority may not approve the construction
of a building that is out of character, or that would adversely affect the
overall look of the area.
The majority of new developments or changes to existing buildings do require consent or planning
permission. The local planning authority will make a decision whether any such construction will
go ahead. Each authority has a development framework that outlines how planning is managed.
This includes the change of use of a building or a piece of land.
