Environmental Statements

Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) are required through a European Law (Directive 85/337/EC) which has been transposed through the UK EIA Regulations 2015. Whether an EIA is required is typically dependent on the size of the site and scale of the development.

Within the D+SD department we have a specialist team who manage and co-ordinate all of the ES Chapters for Daylight, Sunlight, Overshadowing, Solar Glare and Light Pollution. The team work closely with other departments and aim to get involved in a project as early as possible, assisting with mitigation through the design and the scoping of assessments required including the preparation of Scoping Opinion text.

The EIA team co-ordinate all of the technical assessments required across three different departments including the various scenarios to be considered.  All of the technical assessments are written up into the ES Chapter and the technical appendices compiled to support the Environmental Statement along with the Non-Technical Summary.

Post submission, the team also assist with addressing consultation responses and/or objections as well as preparing supplementary reports for planning committees or in the event a scheme is called in by the Mayor of London.
