Default Environmental Issues in Construction Planning

It can be, as an example, referred to the entry "Planning and environmental issues" of the London Borough of Lambeth's website, as follows:

"We seek to promote the economic, social and environmental well-being of Lambeth and its people. We are committed to the concept of sustainable development and, through the 'Best Value' regime, to the continuous improvement of the services we provide."

It would be useful if we can review environmental issues and their characteristics in construction, which are critical factors in evaluating potential adverse impacts of a construction plan.

The construction planning should adhere to international and national standards and work practices, which should be closely supervised. The environmental impacts shall be well identified, assessed and efficiently mitigated.
