Screening Opinions

Before submitting a planning application developers can request a screening opinion to identify if the project is likely to have a significant effect upon the environment and to determine if an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) will be required for the development. 

Scoping Opinions

If an EIA is required then applicants can then seek advice about what needs to be included in the EIA by requesting a scoping opinion.
