Our team brings together chartered environmental professionals and specialists across a range of environmental disciplines within the council. The team has experience of managing the EIA process for a range of infrastructure projects. These include renewables, waste management, transport, and regeneration schemes.
We work with client teams within local authorities at district and county level, government agencies, Local Enterprise Partnerships and private companies. We help identify potential planning and environmental risks for projects in advance of making submissions, and develop pragmatic and sustainable development solutions which maximise the likelihood of obtaining consent.
We can help clients prepare consent applications for development which need EIA or other types of environmental assessment. We can also offer advice to local authorities on EIA best practice and can undertake reviews of Environmental Statements.
