Assessments and studies

We’ve submitted a scoping document to key statutory and local community stakeholders to get their views on what we should include in our formal studies.

Independent environmental consultants will then undertake the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and surveys. Their findings will form part of the Environmental Statement we submit with our planning application.

The EIA typically considers potential impacts such as:

  • Cultural heritage
  • Landscape and Visual
  • Cumulative impact
  • Noise
  • Shadow flicker
  • Access and Transport
  • Ecology
  • Ornithology
  • Aviation
  • Telecoms
  • Ground conditions
