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/EIA Reports. We build, lead and co-ordinate a bespoke team of consultants for each development project. This ensures appointment of the best consultant team to deliver a robust EIA which is fit for purpose.

As an IEMA accredited business, and recognised as ‘competent experts’, we are able to oversee the production of Environmental Statements/EIA Reports on a wide variety of projects including, residential and commercial, minerals, waste, infrastructure and renewables schemes, and have significant experience in managing complex EIA teams.

Our clients benefit from an integrated planning and design-led approach.  The design process is ingrained within the EIA preparation to create the optimal design for each development.  Our experience has demonstrated that this gives the best chance of gaining planning permission.

We work with our clients to ensure an appropriate level of assessment is undertaken and information is clearly presented in an Environmental Statement/EIA Report.  With offices in both Scotland and England, we are able to provide commercial and competitive planning advice on the EIA regulations used across both countries.
