Environmental Impact Assessments
Environmental Impact Assessments is a procedure that leads to the production of the Environment Statement that accompanies major planning applications or those that have the potential to have significant environmental effects.
Undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment often involves a number of specialists looking at highways, transport, ecology, landscapes and other technical aspects of the development.
The Town & Country Planning Environment Impact Assessment Regulations outline types of development that are covered either as Schedule 1 or Schedule 2. Schedule 1 developments must have an Environmental Statement, Schedule 2 only in some cases.
Pigs and Poultry Developments often need an EIA and there are few organisations that understand the specific issues involved. We can however prepare EIAs for a whole range of proposals, managing sub consultants as required.
