Environmental Impact Statement
Conducting an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is necessary to accompany certain types of development. Formal environmental assessment enables the environmental effects which may be caused by a project to be systematically evaluated and presented in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The legislation relating to EIA is based upon Irish Planning and Development Acts and the Planning and Development Regulations.
Possible environmental effects resulting from the proposed development are assessed against legislative and commonly accepted standards and guidelines that affect various aspects of the proposed development. The EIS then systematically evaluates the positive and negative impacts of the project on both natural and human environments. The EIA assesses the developments impact on air quality, water quality, noise levels, traffic, socio-economic impacts, groundwater and local ecology. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is the final document that is produced from the EIA process.
Rowan Engineering Consultants offers a comprehensive service in Environmental Impact Assessment and EIS reports with our specialist team of Environmental Scientists, Ecologists and Engineers. Each EIS is prepared in accordance to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines, “Guidelines on the Information to be contained in Environmental Impact Statements” and “Advice Notes on Current Practice in the Preparation of Environmental Impact Statements“. We provide guidance and advice from individual technical sections through to complete management of the EIA/EIS and the associated planning process.
