A team of specialist consultants are in the process of undertaking a series of technical surveys and assessments as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is required by legislation to support the planning application.
An Environmental Statement is being prepared that will present the findings of the EIA, which has evaluated the likely environmental impacts and effects of the proposed development on the site and surrounding area.
The EIA will focus on matters including highways & access, landscaping, flood risk & drainage, ecology & biodiversity, heritage & archaeology, noise and air quality.
An experienced team of consultants is also preparing the necessary plans and drawings to accompany the planning application, including a Design & Access Statement and a Design Code, which will set out a series of parameters and standards that any future development will be required to adhere to and which would become an approved planning document if the proposals are granted.
The planning application will be supported by this suite of documents that will be available to view in due course via the Council’s website.
