Lovejoy's produces firstplan for Palestine

  • Comment

Landscape architect Derek Lovejoy Partnership has drawn up a detailed masterplan to protect historic and Biblical Palestinian sites and make way for controlled development. Commissioned by the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Planning and International Co-operation, Lovejoy has divided the 5600km2 of the country into four zones.

They are: exceptionally high landscape value where no development should take place (10 per cent of the country); grade 1 landscape - highly desirable to be retained (35 per cent); grade 2 landscape - desirable to retain but could allow some development (30 per cent); and, grade 3 landscape - areas in which development could take place, including land already developed (25 per cent).

Lovejoy worked on the study with Norwegian environmental planning consultant Asplan Viak.
