bdla offers new course on current field of work for experts in administration and planning offices
The Association of German Landscape Architects (Bund Deutscher Landschaftsarchitekten bdla) is offering a new two-day training course on a current field of activity, the specialist contributions to water law audits in planning and project approvals. The first training course will take place on 9 and 10 November 2017 in Frankfurt am Main.
According to the recent case law of the European Court of Justice, the obligations resulting from the European Water Framework Directive - primarily the prohibition of deterioration and the improvement requirement - form concrete approval requirements for individual projects. These requirements are currently gaining considerable importance in many planning and infrastructure projects. The new tasks are not only relevant for water management projects, but must also be taken into account, for example, in the planning and approval of projects in the areas of road construction, mining, agriculture, urban development and industrial plants. In the future, the technical contribution under water law will therefore, if necessary, supplement the already known technical environmental contributions such as the environmental impact study, the environmental report or the documents for the FFH impact assessment or the species protection law assessment.
In practice, many aspects of water law are still in flux, and many questions remain unanswered. The interdisciplinary character of the new task poses considerable challenges, for example to the coordination function of landscape architects in complex planning procedures. The bdla enables with the advanced training to discuss the field of tasks on the highest professional level; thereby also the debate of the method and standard development is given broad space.
Instructors - leading experts from administration and planning offices - and participants will shed light on how to properly implement the technical contribution under water law in the approval procedures and how to clearly define the interface to other instruments in the future. The legal basis for or current case law on the test objects and test standards still raise various questions. The planning practitioners are faced with concrete challenges regarding the appropriate methodology for the recording and assessment of impacts on water bodies. New requirements for technical planning and impact predictions need to be clarified. Using the example of road construction and traffic, the necessary drainage technology, the relevant substance inputs, new techniques, standards as well as knowledge of substance retention and surface water treatment will be dealt with.
