Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs)


When assessing a planning application, we consider the impact on the environment through a process called Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

The aim of an EIA is to protect the environment by ensuring that when deciding whether to grant planning permission (which is likely to have significant effects on the environment), the Council does so in the full knowledge of the likely significant effects, and takes these into account in the decision-making process.
