What is an environmental impact assesment (EIA)?

Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations 2011 form part of the development control system in England and relate to certain types of development.

The EIA Regulations give planning authorities a means of ensuring that they can take account of the environmental, economic and social implications of individual developments in their decisions on planning applications.

The EIA Regulations place a number of responsibilities on planning authorities, which relate to the different stages of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process.
