The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Process

An EIA usually forms part of the planning process. It involves the production of an Environmental Statement to support the planning application for a proposed development. An EIA is mandatory for all proposed Schedule 1 planning projects and discretionary for proposed Schedule 2 projects.

To assist the process, developers can request from the relevant planning authority a ‘screening opinion’ (to see if their development proposal requires an EIA) and then a ‘scoping opinion’ (to determine the range of topics needed to be covered by the EIA).

The main topics of an EIA include:

The potential environmental impacts caused by the proposed development need to consider all those effects that are: positive and negative; direct and indirect; short- and long-term; permanent and temporary; primary and secondary; and cumulative.

Phlorum can manage and co-ordinate the EIA for a proposed development including the consultation and public consultation process.
