Environmental Planning is the kind of planning which produces through its operations an integrated plans with environmental dimension, it is not only producing environmental plans which aim directly at protecting the environment and conserving the natural resources, but also produces other types of plans that take into account the environmental dimension. Thus, environmental planning may include purely environmental projects such as (rehabilitation of polluted river project, project of conserving threatened animals with extinction danger, the project of establishing an environmental monitoring plant), and it may include environmental development projects (such as eco-tourism projects, waste recycling project), and also it may include a pure development projects (such as the construction of cement plant), but such a project can be within the environmental planning framework when studying the environmental impact assessment and redesign it in a way that reduces its impacts on the environment to zero or less than the possible grades.
Environmental planning is defined as a new concept and approach that evaluates the development plans through environmental perspective, or in other words it is the planning that governs primarily the environmental dimension and the expected environmental impacts for the development plans for the foreseeable and the unforeseeable future. It is the planning that cares about capacities or environmental load in a way that the development projects ambitions do not exceed and environmental critical limit, a limit that we should not stop on, or we should not transgress it, in order not to have a contrary results that may damage the outcomes of development plans.
