      Environmental Impact Assessments

      Adding value to minimise the environmental impact of your development or infrastructure projects from the outset and ensuring compliance with the legislative requirements of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

      Whether you are working on a larger development project or a major housing scheme, consideration of EIA requirements early in the project conception is key to a successful planning submission.

      From complex residential, commercial, educational or mixed-used developments to intricate infrastructure projects, each scheme requires a dedicated and informed approach to ensure you save money and time.

      Our IEMA accredited practitioners carry out EIA alongside our Masterplanning services and other impact assessment services, including Health Impact Assessments and Wellbeing Assessments to improve the environmental and social impact on the local built environment.

      We work collaboratively with landowners, promoters, developers and our in-house specialist teams to strategically advise on projects so that they are compliant with regulations and are sustainable.

      The earlier you get advice on the environmental impacts of your scheme and ensure legal compliance with the EIA Regulation requirements, the better. We know that it’s important to find an advisor who has both insight and experience in this field.

      That’s why we are recognised by IEMA as being at the forefront of good practice and competent expertise in the field of EIA - we’re at hand to help.

      Social Value

      Delivering social value through developments is now required by updated compliance and policy, and by society more generally. This means a more sustainable and clearly articulated development resulting in a more valuable and marketable product and is something we are passionate about at Bidwells.
