Abstract

A territorial plan not only resolves the complex spatial arrangement and functional use of a territory but also creates the prerequisites for the permanently sustainable development of a municipality. Activities involved in territorial planning such as preparation, processing, discussion and approval of the territorial plan, have associated risks which can significantly impact on the quality of life of residents. A process of risk assessment and the subsequent incorporation thereof into strategic documents on territorial management can provide increased security for the territorial unit. On the basis of a survey possible risks are identified and assessed using a method of mathematical statistics known as “analysis of variance” (ANOVA). The risks are identified by determining the margins of acceptability using the “scoring method” in combination with a risk map. On the basis of the analysis the resulting risks are divided into acceptable and unacceptable risks. For unacceptable risks it is necessary to approve and incorporate preventive measures directly into the municipality’s territorial planning documentation.
