As environmental issues become more significant in the decision-making process, delivering a robust Environmental Assessment is key to the success of many large-scale development projects. Used to establish the potential impact of a development, EIAs can be a complex and detailed aspect on such projects. Having managed a number of EIAs, Ridge is experienced in EIA screening, EIA scoping and Environmental Statement production.
