AMbleSide Waterfront Park Extension

Environmetnal Impact Assessment
PWL Partnership Landscape Architects

Diamond Head Consulting (DHC) conducted an environmental overview assessment for the Ambleside Waterfront park extension. The intent of this report was to inform the planning and design phase for the park extension. The environmental overview assessment identified existing natural values, opportunities for enhancement and constraints associated with the site. The site was delineated into polygons with similar habitat and ecology characteristics. Sample plots were established in each polygon where detailed observations were taken of trees, vegetation and wildlife. In addition to terrestrial ecology, one on-site stream was assessed. This inventory and summary report summarizes environmental values and land use associated with the park and includes preliminary recommendations for environmental restoration and mitigation.
