If you are proposing to carry out development that requires planning permission you may be required by the Council to provide an Environmental Statement with your planning application. This Statement must describe the likely significant effects of the development on the environment.
We can advise you on whether you need to prepare an Environmental Statement, including requesting a formal opinion from the Council (referred to as a Screening Opinion).
If you are required to prepare an Environmental Statement, we will guide you through the process and project manage and co-ordinate the preparation of the Statement.
Working alongside our planning lawyers at Shakespeare Martineau, we are also able to ensure your Environmental Statement fully complies with all relevant legislation.
