Environmental Impact Assessment

A comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is currently being undertaken by UK-based, internationally recognised, consultants. EIA is a process which identifies and assesses the potential significant environmental effects of a project, informs the design of the project from an environmental perspective, and sets out standard industry and additional mitigation measures to eliminate or minimise the project’s effect on the environment.

The project team is engaging with key environmental and conservation stakeholders and other relevant consultees in order to inform the scope of the EIA and detail of the project. Documents that have been prepared for the EIA application are available in the Document Library.


In order to understand the local environment, potential impact from the development and how the project can reduce and mitigate impacts, the Environmental Impact Assessments will include the findings from a range of surveys and studies conducted in the local area.
