Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a core part of planning and development; a process by which the anticipated effects on the environment of a proposed development is measured in order to be able to make an informed decision. The EIA process, while often seen as complex and confusing, if managed properly offers an opportunity to de-risk development and enhance reputation.

The emphasis is to find solutions that reduce or compensate for the potential impacts of construction, both in construction phases and operational phases. Our approach at Olanab Consults is to focus the EIA process upon the key issues and take a proportionate approach to the assessment so as to minimise project risk and maximise opportunities for success.

Our Approach includes the following:

  • We create a project strategy which identifies the range of issues critical to project risk, value and success.
  • We define a suitable project scope, proportionate to the nature and scale of the development, by initiating an early and effective consultation process.
  • We design-in solutions, embedding sustainable mitigation measures in the design, to add value and reduce the likelihood of issues later on, saving you time, money and wasted effort.
  • We prepare a robust Environmental Statement or appraisal that addresses regulatory requirements and guidance.
