Stephenson Halliday is working alongside Q+A Planning and coordinating an Environmental Impact Assessment for a warehouse unit totaling approximately 70,000 sq.m in Wakefield, for Next plc.
The proposal is adjacent to an existing Next distribution centre and will be linked by an enclosed double-deck bridge. An EIA Scoping exercise has been undertaken with the local planning authority and relevant consultees and relevant environmental issues have been identified.
The Environmental Statement (ES) will include an assessment of landscape and visual amenity, ecology, cultural heritage, transport, noise, air quality, soils, water, ground conditions and socio-economic effects.
In addition to coordinating the ES, Stephenson Halliday is also undertaking the landscape and visual assessment and preparing the landscape masterplan.
