For Planning applications where contamination may be a concern, a Phase 1 environmental site assessment to determine if the site is contaminated may be required. This may subsequently lead to the requirement of a Phase 2 assessment.
Planning applications for large or complex development proposals are often required by law to be supported by a formal Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
A plethora of planning legislation has been established over the years, making it clear that environmental impact assessment should be a thorough process and strongly evidence based.
The planning risks of legal challenges, financial risks, and the risks to the project programme all merit the appointment of a strong EIA expert.
