Environmental Impact Assessment
The successful assessment of environmental impact of major schemes brings important safeguards and mitigations. EIA work has to reach high technical and procedural standards.
We lead and co-ordinate teams of consultants to deliver robust Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for all types of development project.
EIA remains a core element of most major development projects. Ever changing legislation and related case law continues to make EIA a key area for those wishing to challenge planning decisions.
We manage this complex process by adopting an informed, rigorous and methodical approach borne out of extensive experience with key consultees.
Obtaining an early understanding of likely impacts allows effective engagement. This acts to minimise delays during the application process and fosters a beneficial working relationship between consultant, client and determining authorities.
We integrate the EIA with the planning and design process to ensure that a complete picture of the development project is presented and considered.
As Registered Environmental Impact Assessor Members of IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) we pride ourselves in delivering quality and cost effective results, to ensure that your development project is delivered as efficiently as possible.
