Gordon McInnes, EEA

Fifth Joint Task Force Meeting

Geneva , 04-06 July2012

what is land take
What is land take?

EEA definition:

  • Loss of agriculture, forest and other semi-natural and natural land taken by urban and other artificial land development.
  • It includes areas where soil is sealed by construction and urban infrastructure as well as urban green areas and sport and leisure facilities.

Roadmap on Resource Efficient Europe:

  • Milestone: no net land-take by 2050. What does this mean? No net change (increase) in built-up areas. If built-up new infrastructure have to reclaim the area some where else (e.g. transform brownfields into agriculture or natural land).

what are the policy responses to land take
What are the policy responses to land take?
  • Cohesion Policy (2014-2020) – thematic objective: environmental protection and resource efficiency. Funds flow to infrastructure developments (e.g. in 2000-2006 period – 5100 km road built, 8400 km rail built, etc.)
  • Roadmap on Resource Efficient Europe – milestone: no net land-take by 2050.
  • Territorial Agenda 2020 - changes in land use (urbanisation, mass tourism, etc.) threaten landscapes and lead to fragmentation of natural habitats and ecological corridors.
  • Guidelines to limit soil sealing - measures for limiting soil sealing include 'land take' targets, planning restrictions and rules on preferential development of brownfield sites.

What are the policy responses to land take?
  • Rural Development Policy (towards 2020) - priorities include restoring, preserving, and enhancing ecosystems e.g. N2000 , landscapes, soil management, etc.
  • The Common Transport Policy - development of transport services must take account of their possible effects on the environment.
  • European Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP) - advocates the development of a sustainable, polycentric and balanced urban system with compact cities.
  • Leipzig Charter of Sustainable European Cities – compact settlement structure as especially sustainable.
