Environmental Impact Assessment

If the nature, scale and location of a development proposal is likely to give rise to significant effects on the environment an Environmental Impact Assessment will be required to accompany a planning application. As this is not a discretionary process, and it has implications for project costs and delivery timescales, Eclipse Planning Services understands the need to consider this requirement early on.

We are experienced in identifying when such an assessment is required and liaising with the Council and stakeholders on both the need for and scope of any Environmental Statement. We have considerable expertise in co-ordinating a team of environmental specialists, preparing and collating technical inputs and project managing the delivery of an Environmental Statement.
