Dealing with this in a good, responsible way is a big priority for us. This is a cultural landscape, and we want to have as little impact on it as possible. The project will take account of the natural environment and biodiversity. Ecologists have performed an environmental assessment, and they did not find any important terrestrial habitats, animal species or cultural landscapes that were threatened by the development. The project aims to preserve the environment as much as possible, so during the planning process we will carry out in-depth impact assessments to look at how biodiversity will be affected.
Our concept study aims to ensure that Kildn fits as naturally as possible into the landscape. The area is currently not very well set up or widely used for hiking. That’s why we’ve looked at designs with green roofs, paths and universal design principles to make the area accessible to Askøy’s residents and visitors.
