The future of EIA after Brexit and changes to the planning regime

This presentation will discuss how the industry should respond to the Government’s desire for “a quicker, simpler framework for assessing environmental impacts and enhancement opportunities." We will also review the potential for UK law to diverge from EU law on environment assessment following the end of the Brexit transition period.

  • Overview of the likely changes envisaged in the Government’s Planning for the Future White Paper and the Environment Bill
  • EIA principles, practice and case law
  • Why have Environmental Statements become so 'complex and defensive' rather than 'concise and informative'?
  • The role of IEMA and other professional bodies
  • How can EIA be made more user friendly
  • The role of stakeholder and public participation in EIA
  • The future of EIA under two regimes – Town & Country Planning vs. NSIPs
  • EIA as a tool for sustainability
