Environmental Impact Assessment

Our team has extensive experience of the assessment of large-scale developments which fall under the EIA Regulations. Working within inter-disciplinary teams, we are able to take complex projects from Scoping stage, through the production of cultural heritage chapters of Environmental Statements, and where necessary representing clients at Public Inquiry or Examination. We recognise the need to establish effective dialogue with statutory consultees and other stakeholders, to provide clients with robust planning advice, and to produce authoritative and fairly balanced assessments.

Our EIA consultancy projects are headed by Andrew Pearson, who has over 20 years’ experience in the field, across Wales, the UK and internationally. His portfolio includes infrastructure (within a particular emphasis on roads), airports, renewable energy and housing schemes.

Written Schemes of Investigation

Written Schemes of Investigation (WSI) are documents which define the scope and standards of archaeological or other heritage studies.

Historic Landscape Studies (ASIDOHL)

In Wales, specific areas of the country are defined in the Registers of Landscapes of Outstanding/Special Historic Interest in Wales. Developments which fall within, or close to, these historic landscapes are required to be assessed.

Desk-based Assessment

Desk-based assessments (DBA) are documents which are requested by planning authorities to enable them to make fully-informed planning decisions.

Archaeological Project Management

We have a proven track record of helping clients navigate their projects from inception, through to the successful discharge of all archaeological planning conditions.
