EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment)
LUC has played a pioneering role in EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) in the UK since the 1970s. We are Registrants of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA)’s Quality Mark Scheme and are fully committed to finding innovative design and environmental solutions for our clients.
We have a core team of EIA specialists, who work closely with our landscape design, ecology and mapping and visualisation teams, as well as an extensive network of additional technical specialists. Our EIA experience includes renewable energy, transport and water resource projects, housing and mixed used developments, mineral extraction and waste management.
Our involvement ranges from the early feasibility to post application stages, including Public Inquiry work, and the discharging of planning conditions. We have been commissioned to independently review Environmental Statements, undertake EIA research projects, and prepare good practice guidance on behalf of government agencies.
