Environmental impact assessments & environmental statements
Environmental Impact Assessments
(EIAs) are an objective study of the potential environmental impact, both positive and negative, of major development proposals. It’s a complex process, required for certain types of development.
Development proposals are first screened to confirm whether or not an Environmental Statement (ES) is required and, if so, the scope of the ES is then confirmed with the local planning authority.
The ES is the detailed analysis of the matters identified in the scoping exercise and brings together the environmental considerations in a single, joined up document. Our RTPI accredited planning team can co-ordinate the drafting of the ES and provide the final document and the associated technical Summary
