Environmental Planning FAQs

Environmental planning services have the potential to make significant contributions to the long-term well-being of communities and future generations. By prioritising sustainable development practices, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting natural habitats, and promoting green infrastructure, these services help create resilient, liveable communities that can thrive in the face of environmental challenges.  

Additionally, by engaging local stakeholders and considering the social and economic impacts of development projects, our team help ensure that the benefits of these projects are equitably distributed, promoting social justice and intergenerational equity. 

Effective communication of a project’s environmental benefits is crucial for building support among stakeholders, including local communities, investors, and regulatory bodies.  

Some strategies include developing clear, compelling narratives that highlight the positive impacts of the project on the environment and society, using visual aids and infographics to make complex information more accessible, and engaging in a proactive, transparent dialogue with stakeholders throughout the planning and development process. 

Partner with our experienced environmental planning professionals and help your project team craft and deliver persuasive, evidence-based communications that resonate with diverse audiences. 

Our Environmental planning experts have extensive experience working with local authorities and are well-versed in the specific planning policies, building regulations, and environmental requirements that apply to development projects.  

By engaging our team, your project team can benefit from knowledge and expertise in navigating the complexities of local compliance. Our Environmental planning experts help ensure that projects meet all requirements, streamlining the approval process and minimising the risk of delays or setbacks. 

A comprehensive environmental impact assessment (EIA) provides a detailed analysis of a project’s potential effects on the environment, including both positive and negative impacts. By identifying and assessing these impacts early in the planning process, project teams can make informed decisions, implement appropriate mitigation measures, and avoid costly delays or legal issues.  

An EIA also demonstrates a commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability, which can help build trust with stakeholders and the local community. 

Environmental planning services play a crucial role in helping projects achieve sustainable development goals. This is accomplished by incorporating eco-friendly practices, reducing carbon footprints, promoting biodiversity, and optimising resource efficiency.  

Our environmental planning professionals work closely with your project teams to identify opportunities for sustainable design, materials selection, and construction methods, ensuring that projects contribute positively to the environment and the communities they serve. 

The UK has a comprehensive set of environmental regulations that must be adhered to when planning a development project.  

These include the Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017, the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017, and the Environment Act 2021, among others.  

It is essential to work with experienced professionals who can guide you through the specific requirements applicable to your project, ensuring full compliance and minimising potential risks.
