A Good Built Environment

"Cities, towns and other built-up areas must provide a good, healthy living environment and contribute to a good regional and global environment. Natural and cultural assets must be protected and developed. Buildings and amenities must be located and designed in accordance with sound environmental principles and in such a way as to promote sustainable management of land, water and other resources."

Will the environmental quality objective be achieved?


No. It is not possible to achieve the environmental quality objective by 2020 on the basis of policy instruments already decided on or planned.
