RTPI response to Environmental Impact Assessment Joint Technical Consultation

The Environmental Impact Assessment Joint Technical call for evidence asks whether proposals to amend EIA regulations on forestry, agriculture, water resources, land drainage and marine works.

Environmental impact assessment (EIA) means checking if work (eg construction) will harm the environment and agreeing what needs to be done to avoid environmental damage. This is a joint consultation between Defra, the Welsh Government, the Scottish Government and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland.

The RTPI is in broad agreement with the proposals, and welcomes efforts to reduce duplication in what can be a very time-intensive process.
