Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) look at whether there are any potential environmental effects of a proposed development or planning application.

The procedure also helps to identify where this can be reduced.

There is a requirement for EIAs to be carried out on certain types of larger development proposals.

Making an appeal

An individual or group can challenge the decision of a local planning authority to grant or refuse planning permission.

This can be done by making a claim for judicial review in the High Court. Further advice about making a High Court challenge can be found on the Courts and Tribunals Judiciary website.
