Work is underway to progress our Environmental Impact Assessment – the process for identifying the likely significant environmental effects, both positive and negative, of a project to inform the decision-making process for development consent.
The EIA process will culminate in the provision of an EIA Report, which will describe the likely significant effects and mitigation measures associated with the project during its construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning phases.
The scoping phase for MarramWind looks at how we will establish the anticipated content of the EIA Report and the various methodologies that will be used for the assessment.
These were discussed with key stakeholders prior to scoping submission and based on recognised good practice and guidelines specific to each environmental topic or discipline as set out in the Scoping Report.
The assessment phase of the EIA process comes next, which involves the assessment of effects, statutory stakeholder consultation, and the production of the EIA Report.
