Based on the year round ecological assessment, Ecological Planning for the land is developed. Though it is shaped based on future expectations from the land, it is basically to boost up the natural systems on the land. Ecological planning assures to protect health of basic resources like soil and water and tries to enhance the status of biodiversity on the land.
There are two types of approaches for ecological planning. One is purist approach wherein aim is to restore the original ecosystem without any commercial expectations or gains from the land. And the other approach is integrated approach wherein certain gains are expected from the land and ecological principles are integrated within the same development.
Ecological restoration is to bring back the original or obvious condition of the land or ecosystem. Here degraded ecosystems are revived with the help of certain restoration principles and techniques.
Ecological assessment of the land and Reference ecosystem helps to define the goal and design the restoration plan. Restoration techniques like Loose boulder bunds to arrest soil and moisture, Protection to grasses to improve biomass, Dry fence and live hedge for protection also serving as habitat for birds for nesting work well in any degraded land.
Any project, be it an acre or hundreds, need space allocation considering the future use, which can be defined using current ecological observations.
Ecological master planning respects the existing biodiversity and natural systems on the land. It actually tries to enhance its status and establish some connectivity all over the land and establish corridors being part of the larger landscape.
E.g., a stream network within land, if protected along with its riparian zone, assures connectivity or a road should not fragment a good forest patch and it may not be a good idea to build a house near an old growth tree teeming with wildlife, which may get displaced due to noise or light.
