We provide effective support to the planning process as a highly regarded technical lead covering Hydrogeology, Hydrology and Geotechnical Investigation.
Environmental Assessments have become an integral part of the planning process. The sequence of negotiation with regulators, scoping requests, site investigation, and impact assessment has become standard practice. We have a highly experienced team of environmental consultants and provides specialist technical support to clients throughout the process, delivering reports that provide answers.
The Environmental impact assessment is the formal process used to predict the environmental consequences (positive or negative) of a plan, policy, program, or project before a decision is made to move forward with the proposed action.
From our launch, clients have benefited from our pragmatic and technically robust approach. Support is provided during initial discussion and negotiation between developers and the regulators to agree the scope of investigations.
Using us at this early stage is often a vital part of the process to ensure a cost-effective outcome for the developer. Our experienced project managers have excellent working relationships with contacts in all regions of the Environment Agency from working for and alongside them on numerous projects.
Our consultancy team focuses on understanding the issues and provides innovative mitigation options which often lead to successful planning applications. Water resources and in particular groundwater are a key issue and require particular expertise.
Having developed many of the UK’s groundwater models for the EA and a working knowledge of nearly every aquifer in the UK, we have the best team of hydrogeologists to support the EIA process.
