As specialists in environmental planning, Stephenson Halliday recognise that the impact of development on the environment is increasingly scrutinised by decision makers and the public.  Where an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required we work with our clients to ensure an appropriate level of assessment is undertaken and information is clearly presented in an Environmental Statement.

Our clients benefit from an integrated planning and design-led approach whereby the EIA process is integrated with the design process to create the optimal design for the development and as a result provide the best chance of obtaining planning permission

Using our experience, knowledge and rigorous approach to EIA, we guide our clients through the process of screening, scoping, consultation, community engagement and production of Environmental Statements. We build, lead and co-ordinate a bespoke team of consultants for each development project. This ensures that the best people work to deliver a robust EIA which is fit for purpose. We also offer specialist inputs to address the planning, landscape and visualisation elements of the EIA process.
