The EIA Regulations are changing – what does this mean for you?
What do you need to know about the forthcoming revised EIA regulations and how the stages of the development planning project process are likely to be affected?
Here’s your chance to find out what the experts think – and get involved yourself – in a special hour-long online event on Wednesday 8th March.
When they come into effect in May 2017, the revised EIA regulations will introduce a number of changes to the screening, scoping, decision-making and enforcement of EIA developments.
Over the course of an hour-long broadcast, this webinar will ask:
- What is the role of an environmental impact assessment and how is that changing?
- What will changes to the screening and scoping requirements mean to you?
- How can the need for an EIA be avoided, and what are the benefits and risks of doing this?
- How is mitigation to be viewed in the new process?
- What do local authorities need to consider?
- How do planning consultancies need to adapt?
- What will be the likely focus of legal challenges after the new regulations are in force?
The event will run from 1:00pm to 2:00pm with presentations from three specialists in the EIA field. You can watch the presentations as they’re made and submit questions to the panellists for a Q&A session in the second half of the event.
Our speakers will include:
- Martin Read (host), Editor – The Planner
- Josh Fothergill, Policy Lead – Institute of Environmental and Assessment (IEMA)
- Alison Carroll, Associate Environmental Planner – Nicholas Pearson Associates
- Alex Ground, Partner – Russell Cooke
