The Dirt reports on plans to develop an expansive public park on Israel’s largest landfill site.

The proposals include 2000 acres of parkland, a man-made lake, on-site water recycling facilities, bio-gas collection systems, man-made wetlands, and an amphitheatre for public events, with transport connections and parking.

Wind turbines and the heritage environment


The Landscape Design Trust (LDT) is organising a conference focusing on wind turbine development and its impact on sensitive heritage sites (14 Sept. 2009).

“What is the situation regarding current legislation, policy and guidance? What have recent appeal decisions added to the debate? Who should be carrying out the assessments? How do we reconcile the need for renewable energy with the protection of heritage assets?”
