Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)

At Neo Environmental Planning Consultancy our multi-disciplinary approach has been tailored to suit all stages of the EIA process, from initial screening through to full Environmental Statement (ES) production. With various in-house specialists, we generally have the capabilities to complete the various EIA chapters without the use of sub-contractors. This allows for greater management, collaboration and co-ordination of the numerous surveys, assessments and reports.

Our various experts allow for the production of the whole EIA or stand-alone chapters tailored to a particular clients requirements.

We have experience of producing EIA’s for all forms of renewable energy projects (wind, solar and hydro), including bespoke chapters. We have also been involved in the production of EIA’s for infrastructural and commercial projects including Quarry developments.

The costs of an EIA will vary depending on the type, sensitivity and scale of the project, as well as the specific requirements outlined by the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and consultees. Neo Environmental are happy to provide costs for clients upon reviewing a project.
