Marine Recreation, properly planned and managed, will minimise impacts on shoreline environments and serve as a driving force for economic development to local communities.
This book looks closely at ways that developers, architects, marina construction companies and private boating organisations can work together with communities to create a positive outcome for all.
The principles involved in developing a sustainable marina are fully explained in these pages, with fabulous four-colour photographs that showcase how a marina can have a very low impact and a positive outcome on its direct environment. Case studies demonstrate how sustainability principles, when integrated throughout the life of the project, can ensure that the natural beauty of a site is retained without compromising the efficiency of the operation, or the enjoyment of the boating community.
This book showcases those marinas that are built and operated on sustainable principles and achieve a balance of social and economic outcomes as well as environmental considerations. For all International Enquiries please call +61 7 5594 8200
