Do you need an Environmental Impact Assessment? Know your obligations early

Ecological assessment

What does your environmental statement need to include?

Many proposals will require formal assessment under the Environmental Impact Regulations (EIA) with a biodiversity chapter in the Environmental Statement. Projects located within proximity of designated sites protected by law (SSSI, SPA, SAC, SINC, Local and National Nature Reserves) may require assessment under the Habitats Regulations 2017 or other consents under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. These designations do not need to be a barrier to development but do require a team with the depth of understanding and experience to develop a strong argument for your project.
